Sticky fingers: Conductors at the 2015 Proms

Our annual celebration of photographer Chris Christodoulou's portraits at the Albert Hall

Every summer at the BBC Proms the world's greatest conductors are captured in the waiting lens of Chris Christodoulou. His official portraits are sent out to the press straight after most concerts. But at the end of the two-month festival he supplies theartsdesk with action shots snaps which the maestri may perhaps not choose to stick on the mantelpiece. For the sixth year running, we publish them here (click on some previous galleries in the sidebar). Feast once again on images of flying hair, glistening foreheads, popping eyeballs, gurning gobs and helicopter arms.

Love the photos, but Prom 4 is Andris Nelsons, not Pavel Cernoch!
