Founding creative partner of digital photography/production/video arts’ studio The New Cruelty James Bareham has captured a wide range of famous subjects for his black and white portrait series, which he shot over a span of 15 years (1997 to present). Actors, directors, musicians, and sportsmen populate his portfolio — screen star Daniel Day-Lewis, director Richard Attenborough, and Roxy Music’s Bryan Ferry amongst them. Check out Bareham’s striking photo collection in our gallery past the break — or just contend with his choice for “loudest band in the world” in the comments below.
