INFORMATION

Over the years Harry Borden has been one of the principal photographers for the leading British-based monthly business magazine Management Today. These twenty prints currently being shown here form part of a larger group twice this size that have been acquired in 2005 with assistance from Deloitte, the National Portrait Gallery's Contemporary Photography Displays Partner through the specially established Deloitte Acquisition Fund. Subjects range from businessman Sir Alan Sugar and Marks & Spencer 's chief executive Stuart Rose to Harper Collins book publisher Victoria Barnsley and Barbara Cassani, chairman of London's 2012 Olympic bid.

In 1998 Harry Borden's burgeoning career as a leading portrait photographer was marked by an award in that year's John Kobal Photographic Portrait Award. At the prize-giving event at the National Portrait Gallery he first met Anne Braybon who had joined Management Today as a commissioning art editor to relaunch the magazine. Already well-known for his work for the Observer, American GQ and Esquire, Borden quickly became equally celebrated for his portraits of leading business people.

As well as for Management Today, for which he became a contributing editor in 2004, Borden works regularly for long established magazines Fortune and Forbes as well as the younger title Fastcompany.

Borden's other portraits in the National Portrait Gallery can be viewed on the Touch Screen Computers in the IT Gallery.

The acquisition was funded through The Deloitte Acquisition Fund. Deloitte is the Gallery's Contemporary Photography Displays Partner helping the Gallery to develop and celebrate its contemporary photography programme.
