HAN­NAH SCOTT-STEVEN­SON

SHOT OUR ‘TWI­LIGHT ZONE’

GQ (Australia) - - GENTLEMEN'S QUARTERLY -

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?

Hair.

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.
