IP is sad to report that the immensely talented photographer Sussie Ahlburg has died.

Ahlburg, 50, was found in the ladies’ bathing pond on Hampstead Heath, north-west London on Monday. She had gone swimming on Sunday and was reported missing by her family when she did not come home.

The BBC has reported that the death is being treated as ‘unexplained’ and that police are keen to speak to anyone who may have seen Ahlburg at the pond on Sunday.

Ahlburg’s distinctive portraits were widely used in the classical music press. Her work frequently appeared in the pages of IP, and she photographed many pianists including Ashley Wass, Benjamin Grosvenor, Nick Van Bloss, Imogen Cooper, Nino Gvestadze and Peter Donohoe.
