Brian Griffin. Power
The Hyman Collection includes a number of works from Brian Griffin's important early book, Power. British Management in Focus. Griffin has explained: "during the 1970s I photographed a series of portraits for the magazine Management Today. The brief was to portray some of the most importnat individuals in the British corporate world but which have since been described as 'witty and slightly surreal images that subverted the notions of men in grey suits and demystified the corporate world'. In 1981 these images along with others of politicians, manufacturers, entrepreneurs, trade unionists, educators and representatives of the media were published in the book Power. British Management in Focus."
