It’s 20 years since Derek Jarman‘s (1942-1994) death, but his films continue to inspire audiences with his romantic and subversive imagery. Jarman contracted HIV in 1986 and he publicly discussed what it is to live, work and influence change with this controversial virus. This year London celebrates his legacy and eclectic work reviving key gay and homo-erotic figures from the past such as Saint Sebastian, and the painter Caravaggio.

Jarman’s work is featured in a huge season at the BFI Southbank coinciding with Derek Jarman: Pandemonium, a King’s Cultural Institute exhibition in the Inigo Rooms, Somerset House, and other events happening as part of Jarman 2014.

Here we present 21 photographs put together to revisit Jarman’s intriguing work.
