What did you most en­joy pho­tograph­ing for this is­sue? The fab­ric boxes for Cloth ( p113). I love the clean graphic lines that are con­tra­dicted by the var­i­ous busy pat­terns. Your en­dur­ing in­u­ences? My Dad, Mr Jack Horner him­self. I see my­self in him and how much he has inf lu­enced my work, play and life. Where is home for you? Bris­tol will al­ways be home. It’s an im­por­tant part of Bri­tish grafti and street art, and breathes an air of cre­ative in­spi­ra­tion. Work by artists such as Gre­gor Minto, Soker and Cheo blow me away ev­ery time I visit. Favourite lo­cal haunts? The Troubador in Manly, a tapas bar run by three guys with per­ma­nent smiles. Ul­ti­mate travel es­cape? To wan­der around Varanasi, In­dia with my cam­era. The jux­ta­po­si­tions of life and death on the Ganges seem fas­ci­nat­ing. On your view­ing list? John Oliver, a satir­i­cal UK co­me­dian who gets mis­taken for an out­spo­ken US pol­i­tics critic. What’s in­spir­ing you? Friends who are happy with their lives! Ev­ery one of them in­spires me in some way. Their pos­i­tiv­ity is con­ta­gious.
