It’s an im­age that he’s be­come well-known for in the in­dus­try. “It was put out on the wire on a Mon­day and by the Wed­nes­day it had made the front pages ev­ery­where from In­dia and Aus­tralia to Swe­den and Italy;

The Tele­graph fol­lowed up with a story en­ti­tled ‘The pic­ture that pinged around the world’. Mrs Thatcher died about a year after the film was re­leased and her pass­ing was in­ter­na­tional news again. Several for­eign news­pa­pers used my photo of Meryl Streep as Mrs T in er­ror.”
