Photo Session #1

Brookner was less shy or rather less camera-shy than one might suppose. 'Too shy to speak, too miserable not to send messages': I quote an early interview from memory.

Matching up the publicly available photos is a fun wheeze for a rainy day. The following pictures, by Karen Robinson, are all from the same session in the early 2000s. They're notably severe and sombre, and did much to cement Brookner's image in her last years.
