Portraits by Rick McGinnis

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)

Helena’s Fish Love Portrait

Helena’s FishLove portrait has finally been released – looks like they tired of us Helena fans pestering them because Helena’s is the only one to be released from the John Swannell collection so far ha ha. Helena poses with a Big Eye Tuna fish. Edit: well, you know what they say about buses! We now have three portraits of Helena! There’s also a great interview with the Evening Standard. An interesting piece of trivia for you – the ‘tattoo’ Helena is seen sporting was drawn on by Tim Burton.

I’m actually very phobic about fish so when Greta asked me to be photographed naked with a 27kg tuna I was more worried about touching it than getting my kit off. Having said that, I conquered my fears and by the end of the morning we’d truly bonded. He will be my Valentine. Source


Note: tweets would suggest that the delay in releasing the portraits was a publicity issues. But good things come to those who wait, and it was certainly worth the wait! If I am not mistaken, three portraits of one celebrity is the most to be released as part of the campaign.
