Images of Banksy “Revealed” in Agent’s New Book

Banksy fans will be given a glimpse behind the mystery for the first time.

The artist’s former agent and photographer, Steve Lazarides, will publish photos from their 11 years of working together.

But, keeping with Banksy’s mysterious profile, the photos don’t show his face.

Lazarides said: “I worked with him for 11 glorious years, during which time we broke every rule in the rule book, along with a fair few laws.

“I hate the art world. I only became part of it because Banksy catapulted the movement into the stratosphere.

“It was a ride – however, I’m glad I’m out of it and about to enter the next ride.”

Lazarides’ 250-page book, Banksy Captured, tells the story of Banksy’s early days.

The images provide a behind-the-scenes look at some of the artist’s most famous work.

The first 50 people to Lazarides’ self-published and self-distributed book will receive a Banksy “Di-faced” £50 note, a fake currency featuring the face of Diana Princess of Wales.

He will also release limited-edition prints of his photographs at affordable prices in a bid to open the art world to a broader audience.
