This image of American-Jewish A-lister Jake Gyllenhaal is one of more than 230 stunning backstage portraits taken by photographer Simon Annand and included in his new book, Time To Act, which is published this week, with proceeds donated to The UK Artists Fund.

The accomplished photographer has spent 35 years capturing actors as they prepare to take to the stage.

His other subjects include Gillian Anderson, Glenn Close, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Sharon D Clark, Lenny Henry, Anthony Hopkins and Judi Dench. 

Time To Act by Simon Annand is published by Lannoo Publishers, priced £39.95 (hardback) and available now.

Blanchett has said of his work: “It is as difficult to capture actors and creative teams in unselfconscious action as it is to arrest birds in flight [but] there lies Simon’s skill.”  

Time To Act by Simon Annand is published by Lannoo Publishers, priced £39.95 (hardback) and available now. A selection of the images will also be available to view on a virtual exhibition from 5 October at timetoactphotos.com
