While you are waiting for the weekly round-up, here is some candy for you:
A tweet by “sparkling teeth” on Twitter alerted me that there appear to be some new images of Richard. More pictures have been released from the shoot that photographer Gareth Cattermole did with RA during the latter’s visit to the Toronto International Film Festival. It’s difficult to be 100% sure that they are new – I certainly don’t download each and every photo of RA that is released, and when they come from a previously seen shoot, it is difficult to actually spot the minute difference between individual pictures in a big shoot. Nevertheless, I do think that sparkling teeth is right and that there are new images among the Getty crop. Not least because while trying to compare, I have noticed that the previously released photos from September 2019 have evidently been moved – the links in my last *ooof* on one of the images were broken.
I tried to compare the new Getty page for this shoot with the images we had previously seen and I have identified some that looked familiar to me.
Not sure whether that is really all of them. I definitely remember the second and third one from the top right (because RA tweeted a sanitised version of that picture on his IG.)
The photos of Richard backed into the corner (the series from which I *ooof*ed one image) seem to be gone. Instead there are more head-and-shoulders in there, and much against my earlier preferences I have to say that I don’t think the “dark haired guy on dark background” pictures work that well. I much prefer the head-and-shoulders with the grey background, even though they look a little bit too much of “I messed with the automatic filters”…
It’s always interesting to see which photos a photographer chooses. It’s all down to personal preference, I guess, because some of the new pictures really remind me of my dad’s driving license pictures, ca. 1963 😂
But generally – always pleased to see some new images. I do think that RA looks phenomenal in them. He is a very handsome man. And a series like this also reveals the humanity behind the gorgeous face. There are glimpses of humour, doubt, insecurity and sarcasm in there. And that is a good thing.
I think this is a previously seen one, but I leave you with my favourite from the shoot:
I think I have to recover from all that beauty before I can attempt the round-up. I hope you understand 😵
