Chris Saunders’ photograph of Magid Magid broke with the traditional formality of a Lord Mayor’s portrait and went viral in 2018. Find out more about how this iconic photograph came about, and hear Chris and Magid discuss what image and identity mean to them.
The portrait features in the Creative Connections Sheffield exhibition, on display at the Millennium Gallery until Sunday 2 October. The exhibition showcases portraits of people connected to Sheffield – from pioneers and performers to athletes and artists – presenting works from the National Portrait Gallery and Sheffield’s own collections.
The exhibition will be open to explore before the event starts, from 6pm.
The conversation will be hosted by Auriel Majumdar and there will be time to ask questions at the end.
