In January 1985, Bob Geldof had an unexpected meeting with the world’s best-known charity worker in Ethiopia…
Do any assignments stand out in your mind?
There are lots. I went out with Bob Geldof to Ethiopia. He’d made the Band Aid record and he thought that would be the end of it. So at the airport in Addis Ababa I saw Mother Teresa. I had been with Mother Teresa and Princess Diana just months before. I went over and she recognised me. I said, “Mother Teresa, I’ve got Bob Geldof here, would you like to meet him?” She said, “Yes.” So I ran off and got Geldof, and I got a picture of the two of them sitting in chairs just schmoozing each other. That’s my claim to fame, to be the only person to have photographed two saints in one photograph!
