MacInnes first visited Gallery One as an art critic before renting a room in the D'Arblay Street building (1956-8), where Kar photographed him. MacInnes became a great friend of Victor Musgrave and Ida Kar and wrote in the foreword of the Whitechapel catalogue that 'an Ida Kar portrait is at once identifiable by its purity and distinction'.
