Behind the MaskPhotographs of A-list movie stars including Scarlett Johannson, Daniel Day-Lewis, Al Pacino, and Robert De Niro reveal what happens Behind the Mask. Taken by Andy Gotts, a celebrity photographer for over 20 years, the images are taken from a pool of over a hundred international actors and actresses who have won or been nominated for a BAFTA since 1954. In addition to the exhibition, images will be projected onto the facade of BAFTA's headquarters at 195 Piccadilly on 15th and 16th February 2014, the weekend of the British Academy Film (BAFTA) Awards.

About Somerset House
