This portrait, commissioned by a perfume company, is an unusual image for Don McCullin who is best known for his reportage from war zones. Sir Kenneth MacMillan (1929-1992), the Dunfermline-born dancer and choreographer, worked on numerous prestigious productions in Britain, Germany and the United States. A former member of the Sadlers Wells Ballet, he directed the Royal Ballet between 1970 and 1977 and also served as director of the Berlin Opera Ballet. He received a knighthood in 1983 and was posthumously awarded a special Olivier Award for his achievements in 1993.
