Shot ‘Soft Space’, p100 What pop culture thing did you miss out on? Most of it, really. I’ve never owned a TV. My father had an obsessivecompulsive personality. To stop himself watching TV he used to lock it up in the back shed. My sister, mum and myself were allowed one program per week. Dad used to lug the TV into the house until we were big enough to do it ourselves. I remember dropping the TV once when I was ten or so. They made TVs heavy in the ’90s – lots of glass. What was the last thing you took a photo of? The tree outside my studio window. It was lime green and everything else was really grey. What gadget are you a sucker for? Guitar peddles. I have a suitcase full and a few cardboard boxes too. Ouch for my bank account. Who would you love to be in a photo with? Elliott Smith. He’s dead, so if it happened, I’d be pretty surprised.
