Delving behind the scenes of the last 4 BAFTA Film Awards – a special exhibition of photography by London-based photographer, Sarah Lee. An official BAFTA photographer since 2015, Lee’s commissions have allowed her extraordinary access to every facet of the Awards event.

Sarah Lee is a London based photographer who came to the medium whilst studying literature at University College London in the late 1990s.
 
Since graduating she’s worked for numerous clients both commercial and editorial, including The Guardian, specialising in portraiture features and the Arts.  Lee has been published by a number of other publications including TIME, Billboard, Rolling Stone, Intelligent Life and Vanity Fair.  Lee’s photographs have been widely exhibited including at the National Portrait Gallery and inclusion in the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize.  
 
An official BAFTA photographer since 2015, Lee’s commissions have allowed her extraordinary access to every facet of the Awards event. What interests her most are the intimate, semi-private moments and spaces during what is an incredibly formal and public international occasion.  Whilst drawn to the glamour and echoes of ‘old Hollywood’, she has refined a sensibility and approach which revels in the territory of the unguarded, playful and surreal.
