SHOT OUR ‘TWILIGHT ZONE’
Which was the best era for fashion photography?
Mid ‘50s to early ‘70s – when Magnum was at its peak. Those images had the power to change opinion and defined an era (see our preview of Magnum’s book on p32). There are more images taken today, but I don’t think many define a time or place as elegantly as those of, say, Robert Frank or Joel Sternfeld.
The difference between shooting men and women?
What do you like most about shooting in winter?
Low light and later call times.
Most obscure thing about being a photographer?
The places it takes you.
What are your shoot-day staples?
Coffee and the right music.
Given the choice, which male icons would you love to have shot and why?
David Bowie for the fashion, River Phoenix for the beauty and William Eggleston for the whisky and what I would hope to learn.
