We wanted to share one of our recent interesting productions with you...
Park are privileged to have been chosen by Mary McCartney to print her new book 'Twelfth Night'. Twelfth night follows Oscar winning actor Mark Rylance and cast backstage preparing for his ground-breaking run as Olivia in Shakespeare's Twelfth Night at the Belasco Theatre on Broadway, New York.
When it was agreed that Mary was to shoot Mark and the cast, the understanding was that she would leave as soon as he was made-up. Rylance had never before allowed anyone to photograph him after that moment.
Mary duly began to pack up her equipment, but to her surprise Rylance leaned over and asked whether she would like to continue to photograph him and the rest of the cast (including Stephen Fry in the role of Malvolio) backstage.
Twelfth Night documents this intimate and privileged experience, capturing the entire performance preparation undertaken by each of the actors and musicians; from both the intense psychological preparation to the candid moments of relaxation that help balance the intensity of the performance. Mary's work creates a fascinating juxtaposition of these intricately costumed figures in various stages of period dress, set against the backstage spaces of the theatre.
Park produced the book to our very high exacting standards, making recommendations throughout the process to ensure the very best reproduction and detail on the chosen stocks. We accurately matched the signed-off proofs while Mary McCartney passed on press. As a special thank you we were invited to the book signing last Friday.
"Love it!! Labour of love!! Thank you!! Super exciting!!" Charlotte Ellis Studio Manager, Mary McCartney
