Ken Lennox was picture editor of the News of The World and The Sun for
the 9 years. He has also worked in Fleet Street for 30 years, across titles
such as The Mirror, The Express and The Today.
Unusually for a picture editor, he is also a professional news photographer
and has been awarded British Press Photographer of the Year four times.
Having spent so long around celebrities, Lennox has captured thousands
of definitive moments, which have become part of our history. Who can
forget the frozen moments of Mrs Thatcher shedding a tear as she left
Downing Street, Princess Diana running across a field in a school's egg
and spoon race, Terry Waite (a newly freed man), waving from an aeroplane,
close-ups of Michael Jackson's cosmetically altered face and Mother Teresa
sitting with Bob Geldof in Ethiopia during the famine? These are some
of the images that Lennox has caught in his quest to capture the moment
when a person's personality reveals itself most.
