Actor Johnny Depp has posed for a unusual photo in which he can be seen behind bars while accepting an award at the virtually-held Camerimage Festival 2020.

The film festival, which is dedicated to the art of cinematrography and its creators, awarded Depp for his unique visual sensitivity.

The festival dropped a photo of Depp beaming from behind bars with the award in one hand.

Depp was unable to attend the festival to collect his award in-person owing to the coronavirus pandemic that has gripped the globe. His film, Minamata, closed the 28th edition of the event.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Johnny Depp sent a written letter to accept the award.

"Johnny Depp earned himself a reputation of a true acting chameleon capable of handling basically everything that the screenwriters, directors, costume designers, make-up artists and others threw at him", the statement read.

They also praised Depp for his many "memorable performances that shaped several generations of moviegoers".

"The relationship between the actor and the cinematographer is a pivotal one".

The 57-year-old actor posing behind camera bars is a tongue-in-cheek poke at the lost of the libel case against The Sun newspaper over the publication's 2018 story describing him as a "wife-beater" during his marriage to Amber Heard.

"I wish to let you know that I have been asked to resign by Warner Bros. from my role as Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts and I have respected and agreed to that request", he announced on Instagram earlier this month. "To capture those unrehearsed moments - those moments of attractive mistake - those same moments that make cinema, and life, magic".
