The portrait was taken by Hamilton shortly before Jarman's death when they met at Tate to celebrate the Gallery's recent acquisition of Jarman's Ataxia - Aids is Fun, the painting in the background. Hamilton later used computer manipulation to blur the image to approximate Jarman's view of the world, affected by a severe eye disorder connected with the later stages of AIDS.
