Over the past 40 years, Boleslaw Lutoslawski has photographed many of the greatest figures in the arts in Europe, spanning the worlds of music, literature, dance, and theatre. Arriving in London from his native Poland in 1980, he was immediately absorbed into the capital’s fast-moving cultural scene, taking portraits of the likes of Glenda Jackson.” I photographed the famous and truly great actress Glenda Jackson in her dressing room at the theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue, London, during a break between performances. At some point, I asked her to sit in front of the mirror. A moment later she glanced at her reflection, while I watched her through the lens. Her body, her face, and her eyes were so touchingly natural because she never loses the truth of her inner soul, which dwells inside an amazing woman. This was a wonderful gift that I wasn’t going to miss. photograph by Boleslaw Lutoslawski.
