BAFTA will use its London headquarters to showcase more than 100 photos, which include studio portraits, backstage images, as well as ‘red-carpet reportage and on-stage shots’ from awards ceremonies over the past year.

Famous subjects in the ‘BAFTA 2015: A Year in Pictures’ exhibition include Benedict Cumberbatch, Eddie Redmayne, Tom Cruise and Emma Watson.

The exhibition, which takes place on 7 and 8 November (10am-1pm), will coincide with an open weekend of talks focusing on different elements of the photography on display.

Photographer Ian Derry will discuss television portraits, Chris Floyd will address women in film and there will be a panel discussing paparazzi photography.

Each talk costs £7.
