Photographed backstage at The Fly awards at The Forum last month, this total ledge came up to our makeshift studio and happily, amongst total chaos, noise and distraction, posed for this front cover like a beacon of serenity amid an ocean of barking sea lions. He was much warmer, giving and frankly happier thank I thought he might be (based on nothing at all) and I'm grateful for the exchange, especially given the circumstances. Shot on a Hasselblad, with Elinchrom lighting in a tight space with 15 people staring.
It's essential apparently to be on Instagram so I've leapt aboard this timesuck with loads of archive images and outtakes. Keener observers might notice a few shots they've seen before, but I've been digging in my crates for a hot minute and will unearth some gems I swear. They has to be some somewhere, honestly.
Without the cover lines, all clean and pure. I would NOT like to be punched by this man, FYI.
