Not in Dublin for Photo Ireland Festival? Faffing about in London? Then get yourself into The London School of Economics this evening. Photographer of the rich, famous and powerful, Platon, will be speaking to celebrate the publication of his new book, Power.

Currently staff photographer of the New Yorker magazine, Platon has photographed the worlds power holders, from Putin to Obama, and all between. He also made this portrait of Christopher Walken

I’m not sure if this photo makes it into Power, but how cool is Christopher Walken?!

If you are in London, then get thee to the London School of Economics, Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House, Wednesday, July 6th. It’s free, first come, first serve.
