photo of the week: HRH The Queen

Posted by carlotta on Monday November 2nd, 2015 at 8:21am

Exactly two years ago Her Majesty the Queen visited Harvey’s Brewery in Lewes and I was hired to document the occasion. I felt it was appropriate, therefore, to share this photo to mark the occasion. Photographing the Queen’s visit was a real privilege and, hands down, the most stressful job I have done to date, but also so interesting (and a bit surreal). A lasting impression from the day was how happy her presence made those who met her. Many people told me that meeting the Queen was one of the best things that had ever happened to them. This seemed in sharp contrast to my favourite photo from the day. For me it captures the essence of how lonely her position of privilege might be. If you look carefully, you can see Prince Philip and Miles Jenner, the Head Brewer of Harvey’s, through the glazed door behind the Queen. More photos from this shoot can be found here.
