What do you hang on the walls of your mind?
If you are careful with people, they will offer you part of themselves. That is the big secret.
If the chemistry is right between star and photographer and the geometry of the pictures pleases the star, often the two people end up with a long-term professional friendship during which they continue to work together and to produce highly personal images.
It is the photographer, not the camera, that is the instrument.
If a photographer cares about the people before the lens and is compassionate, much is given.
I look for a sense of reality with everything I did. I didn't work in a studio, I didn't light anything. I found a way of working which pleased me because I didn't have to frighten people with heavy equipment. It was that little black box and me and £5 worth of film in my pocket or maybe it was only £2 in those days.
