Gordon Ramsey - Hero Or Villain?
18 Jul 2007
Whilst filming at the luxurious Drakes Hotel in Brighton (UK), international chef Gordon Ramsey chanced upon a set of David Steen's photographs in the lobby of this beautiful townhouse hotel. Ramsey, well known for his forthright attitude along with his culinary expertise, took to the prints immediately and bought all seven.
The prints featured Michael Caine, Sean Connery, Robert Mitchum, Oliver Reed, Lee Marvin, Richard Harris and Rudolf Nureyev. These, as you may imagine, are just a tiny fraction of the cultural icons that David Steen has photographed during his illustrious career. In 2005 Genesis were fortunate enough to be given unprecedented access to his full archive to produce a 'biography' of his work which features many more astounding images additionally captioned with David's own words.
