Portraits: 17

James Ivory, film director, at home, London, 1991.
Half of the Merchant/Ivory film-making team, Ivory had the calm presence you might expect from the director of Room With a View etc. This shot though – in an apartment he shared with Ismail Merchant, his film and life partner who died in 2005 – was probably for an interview in promotion of Mr and Mrs Bridge.
