Lewinski has specialised in the photographic portrayal of artists, his Portrait of the Artist ; Twenty-five years of British Art, was published in 1987. This image of Lowry was taken on one of rare visits to London and Lewinski recalls collecting him in a taxi from his hotel near Russell Square, and taking him to a dilapidated industrial area near King's Cross for the photographs. They then had 'tea and fruitcake in a real transport cafe'.
