Helena has been a little quiet in terms of public appearances of late – most likely she is focusing on her current projects. This has been a blessing for me as life has been a little hectic and I’ve not had much time to post updates. As way of apology, here are some new-old portraits of Helena from the 1992 Cannes Film Festival.
Photographer Pedro Usabiaga shared this stunning portrait of Helena, taken at the 1995 San Sebastian Festival in Spain.

I’ve been super busy so I’m just trying to catch up on all the Helena news lately! I have added 6 HQ pictures of Helena, photographed by Elena Rendina for The Sunday Times Style magazine.
Photographer Rick McGinnis has shared more portraits of Helena on his website. Last year, McGinnis wrote a blog post about his experience of photographing Helena in Tonoronto in January 1996, which included previously unseen outtakes of a photo session for Now Magazine. He recently wrote about the rediscovery of some old negatives from the same session, and share them in this blog post.
As I recalled in my previous post, this was one of my favorite shoots from my time at NOW magazine, because my subject – a notorious eccentric – responded to my camera with a real performance, a tiny woman in baggy clothes, running through a gamut of expressions while sunk in the depths of an enormous hotel chair.

I have added 3 HQ portraits by Jonty Davies, as featured in the November issue of Red Magazine. The magazine will be out this week, 01st October, in the UK, although a special issue is available early to subscribers. You will also be able to purchase a digital edition.
A strong sense of self, a brilliant talent and a dirty laugh – there’s something magical about Helena Bonham Carter.
As the 49-year-old actress stars in new film, Suffragette, she talks EXCLUSIVELY to Maggie Alderson for Red about how she feels after splitting with her husband, director Tim Burton, why her new film hits close to home and why it’s important to say hello to everything in life.
Academy Awards Group shared these portraits by Peter Lindbergh, from the 2012 edition of Interview magazine.
To celebrate International Women’s Day this coming Sunday, the cast and crew of Suffragette are joined by Helen and Laura Pankhurst, great-grand-daughter and great-great-grand-daughter of Emmeline Pankhurst, for a special portrait. Source: The Guardian
Photographer, Rick McGinnis has posted an interesting blog post about photographing Helena at the Toronto Film Festival in 1996, including 3 previously-unseen portraits! He also photographed Tim at the 2005 festival.
I first saw Helena Bonham Carter in real life several years earlier, in the lobby of the Sutton Place during the film festival. She was already known as an eccentric, and suddenly appeared in the middle of the thronging lobby in a pair of overalls with one leg rolled up, a pair of mismatched socks and Converse high tops. Oblivious to the stares of the crowd around her, she scanned the corridors looking for someone, apparently in vain. (read more)
