Photographs by Dmitri Kasterine, 1964-2008
Since the early 1960s Kasterine has photographed some of the most eminent cultural figures of the twentieth century. One of Kasterine's most famous sittings was with Samuel Beckett in 1965 at a rehearsal for Beginning to End. Other important photographs include Kasterine's portrait of the late Dame Beryl Bainbridge (1972) and his frequently reproduced double portrait of Kingsley and Martin Amis (1975), most recently published in Martin Amis's autobiography Experience: A Memoir. Later photographs include Roald Dahl (1976), Francis Bacon (1978), David Niven (1979), and portraits taken on location of Robert Graves at home in Majorca (1980), Lawrence Durrell at home in Provence (1976), and Dame Muriel Spark (1978) outside her Tuscan farm house.
