Born in Tanzania, Anwar took up photography as a hobby and before he was twenty, he had gained a reputation for having a way with a camera…

During the 60s, Anwar primarily covered counter-culture events such as the Isle of Wight Festival. His flair for compelling portraiture and his reportage of artists such as Rod Stewart, Elton John and Bob Dylan made him among the most sought after photographers of the rock era.

By the mid 70s, Anwar’s work was transformed when he became a set photographer for such classic movies as 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Bond films.┬áDuring the 1980s, as Royal Mania swept the world, Anwar’s style of more natural setting became more and more popular. Prince Charles, Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Anne and the Queen Mother have each used one of Anwar’s pictures to grace their official Christmas cards.

We are so excited to share this wonderfully eclectic gallery of Anwar’s work with you!
