Joe Strummer, Soho, London 1989
September 18 1989 : The legendary Joe Strummer and one of my all time favourite portraits.
I'm forever grateful to melody Maker for sending me out to meet Joe Strummer on a number of occasions - I never saw The Clash but bought and played their records to death as a 15 year old down in the depths of Cornwall.
Strummer, an easy subject to work with, waved and greeted passing fans who chanced upon us in front of St.Annes Church in Soho...I was really happy with the shoot just a few frames in, battered old Pentax MX with a deep red filter, a couple of rolls of fast film, perfect conditions, it all came together for one of my favourite sessions ever.
