Combining my love of photography and my faith in Apple products now comes second nature. So I couldn’t resist popping into the National Portrait Gallery to see Andreas Gursky’s photograph of Sir Jonathan Ive posing in the new Norman Foster-designed Apple Park in California.
Sir Jonathan said he was honoured to have his photograph taken by Gursky, the renowned German photographer: “I have been obsessed with Andreas’s work for a couple of decades and vividly remember the thrill of our first meeting seven years ago.
“His very particular and objective presentation of what he sees, whether voluminous landscapes or the rhythm and repetition of supermarket shelving is both beautiful and provocative. Mindful that he rarely makes portraits, this is a conspicuous and particular honour for me.”
If you haven’t already paid a visit, do call in to the National Portrait Gallery to see this evocative image. Entrance is free, of course, so you won’t feel shortchanged if you don’t have time to see the rest of the wonderful portraits on display.
