Footnotes

  • This massive photograph, one of the most impressive images of Beckett, was taken in Room 604 at the Hyde Park Hotel in London in 1980. Minihan had left a note for Beckett at the hotel offering to show him some photographs and duly went round when Beckett invited him to do so. He recalls: 'Mr Beckett opened the door with a smile on his face. He put me immediately at ease. He was dressed casually, wearing flip-flops. The room was a small one at the back of the hotel, overlooking the park...He had a great face for black-and-white and he certainly posed...' Minihan also photographed Beckett in 1984.
