Igor Emmerich/Cinven

Igor Emmerich's most recent commission took him to the London headquarters of Cinven, Europe's leading equity firm. Igor tells us how he's enjoyed discovering the characters behind the business. "I have been shooting for them for a few years now so you could say that the portraits are part of an ongoing campaign. Cinven invest in quality companies so they need me to take portraits of their partners and associates and convey through the images not only  their passion for excellence as a company, but also how friendly and approachable they are as people. On a side note I would add they they are also super intelligent and very interesting people, with hobbies such as model army collecting (one guy has the whole top floor covered in small army figurines, wife really pleased!), and one of the Italian partners reads medieval history, he's like a walking encyclopaedia"
