Amit Lennon specialises in intimate and individualistic portraits. His subjects, whether famous or unknown, are all treated with compassion and intensity.
His work encompasses subjects as diverse as UK prison reform, coal mining in the arctic, stargazing in Chile's Atacama Desert, or remaking the FA cup.
Amit is known for bringing a fresh style and aproach to whatever he tackles. Always finding inventive solutions and infusing his work with a strong colour palette.
He works for a wide spectrum of magazines, tackling commissions for both celebrity portraits as well as delicate and challenging subjects. He initiates and originates many personal projects himself.
In his commercial work he often works with design agencies to create a tailored visual approach.
Amit has recently expanded into making Short Films. His short "I'll Murder You" was premiered at the Purcell Rooms at London's Southbank and "Glumtree" was shortlisted for Virgin Media Shorts. He has also made several Corporate films.
Amit was commissioned by the House of Commons to create a series of portraits of MPs, for their permanent collection to be displayed in the Palace of Westminster. This was the first time that the works of art committee had commissioned photography for the collection.
The National Portrait Gallery has purchased Amit's portrait of DJ John Peel for its permanent collection, describing it as "a widely reproduced and sympathetic portrait of the legendary DJ".
Amit was born in Israel and grew up in a small seaside town north of Tel Aviv. He moved to London in his late teens where he later graduated from University College London with a degree in Astronomy and Physics.
