The photographer shoots philanthropists and founders of the Breakthrough Prize Yuri and Julia Milner in
Written in the Stars (p 124) How many cameras do you own? Probably 15 to 20, maybe more. They are everywhere, in the office, kitchen cupboards and old bags. I’m not sure how many work. My favourite at the moment is a new 8x10 film camera I got recently. Colour or black-and-white photos? If I had to shoot one or the other for the rest of my life, I’d go for black and white, but I do like to colourise old b&w photos. Where do you feel at home the most? I know this is the obvious answer but it’s true that I’m quite comfortable with a camera in my hand. It’s a bit of a crutch sometimes in social situations. Which icons of the past would you like to have shot? The Beatles, Winston Churchill, Abraham Lincoln. What podcast are you currently listening to? One called Stuff You Missed in History Class. I hated history class, but I really enjoy this podcast. Do you believe in alien life? Let’s just say I’m a big fan of The X-Files.
