Margaret Thatcher at a photocall for the Teesside Development Corporation, 1987, by John Voos.
Soon after her third general election victory Mrs Thatcher pledged to turn her attention to Britain’s inner cities and industrial wastelands, some created by her own policies. This famous picture was taken at a photocall for the Teesside Development Corporation.
John Voos comments: “Of course I shot her walking towards me too. The film went back to London on the train and then the decision was made not to use the obvious photograph. It couldn’t have been done without the vision of the picture desk.”
