Clive Anderson portrait at RIBA

I was asked to cover the English PEN fundraising quiz at the extraordinarily beautiful RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) last week. The night was deftly hosted by presenter, author and former barrister, Clive Anderson. It was star-studded night, bringing together the great and the good of the London’s media and literary worlds. Mr. Anderson did sterling work with an exuberant crowd. I took his portrait at the end of what was a very long night – I think he projects an air of being simultaneously satisfied yet exhausted.
