Jeremy Irons and Sinéad Cusack have been photographed by freelance documentary and portrait photographer, Matt Humphrey, for a charity project called 31thirtyone. The purpose of the project was to take 31 photos in as many days during the month of August, and then to present the photos in an exhibition both physically and online. The photos will be printed, mounted and framed in a limited amount and put up for public auction for the benefit of the charity Crohn’s & Colitis UK.
