About The Author
James Hunkin has been photographing people for nearly twenty years. Following a commission by the National Theatre to take portraits of their leading actors, writers, and directors, he has since photographed Britain’s religious leaders, as well as some of the country’s leading artists and architects for the Royal Academy and Britain’s leading scientists for the Dept. of Education. ‘Faces of Law’ represents the latest chronicle in an on-going series.
He has exhibited at the National Theatre, National Portrait Gallery and Royal Academy and has had two previous publications, Changing Faces and Faces of Faith.
‘This remarkable collection of photographs shows the faces of lawyers from all over the
legal landscape. It shows the variety of what lawyers do and the variety of lawyers who
do it. The words they have chosen, tell us something of how they think or feel about what
they do but the photographs tell us even more about them. It all adds up to an intriguing
picture of the British legal system as it is today’.
Baroness Hale of Richmond, Law Lord
