Aidan Turner has leant his beautiful face to the Take A Moment 4Mind Campaign.
“Over 250 personalities have endorsed the use of their pictures by Ray Burmiston for the Take A Moment exhibition including Mind’s President Stephen Fry.
The collection has been curated from a decade of outtakes from Ray’s studio, hundreds of moments where he asks his subjects to close their eyes for a few seconds, to refresh their connection with the camera, capturing powerful moments of self-reflection.”
Edited to note: If you read the above description, you can see that while this photo may be “new” to us.. it is not necessarily a RECENT photo. The photographer has been collecting these photo over the past 10 years.
This is post by Ray Burmiston on Instagram that gives a little more insight in to how the exhibition was concieved!

I believe the above photo was taken while Ray Burmiston did the photos for this spread in Radio Times Magazine in 2018
