I shot these phots on a Linhof 5×4 plate camera for Hearst Magazines – it was a story about the … More
Charlotte Rampling – Vogue September 1970 and Harpers (early 90s)
Even when I asked her if I could pour water over her head. She said yes and then my assistant was duly instructed to stand on a tall ladder and sprinkle water over her.

Hunter S Thompson Gonzo – My Fear & Loathing NYC ’72
‘It’s Clive,” I ventured we have a meeting about your movie”, there was a clattering of what sounded like cans, then Hunter let me in, where he shambled into the room and then slumped down onto the floor leaning back in an open fridge which had, had it’s door aggressively removed by Hunter.
The Liberty of Venus – Melanie Scheriau (2002)
I was sinking further into disappointment as the art director leant forward said in an almost intimate whisper “and a lingerie shoot.” At that moment I heard Schiller’s ‘Ode to Joy’ in the background
