Caractère

Caractère is a Kensington Restaurant run by Emily Roux (granddaughter of Albert, daughter of Michel Roux Jnr) and her husband Diego Ferrari, former head chef of Le Gavroche. I was commissioned by Time Out for the review of these stunning dishes.

Daniel Day Lewis

I am very sad to see DDL has retired - I photographed him twice, and both times he was utterly charming. There was a hint of mischief in his manner, a feeling he was both totally aware of the absurdity of 'the junket', yet equally happy watching the various dynamics between Journalists, Publicity Officers, Photographers, and Artist Management.

This was at odds with the view I have read several times today, that he was difficult or avoided interviews or publicity.

Like most people who excel at a chosen field, he probably is excelling in many more areas of his life we never see. I remember that Barry McGuigan was convinced he could have been a fighter after training him for The Boxer. Bit late for that Daniel, but let's hope he changes his mind on retirement.

Artist Stephen Wright in his House of Dreams

This shot was taken whilst documenting Stephen's House/ Museum in Dulwich a couple of years ago. It is an amazing collection of found objects and  re-fashioned dolls and toys created over the last two decades. Only open on a few days a month on average, perfect for lovers of Outsider Art. I found it incredibly moving hearing his stories of the objects and the driving force behind the project, it is a must see for anyone searching for those London secret gems we all harp on about endlessly.

The Lord Alfred Dubs

It was quite a feat trying to keep up with 84 year old Alf Dubs as he raced through the corridors and communal areas of the Palace of Westminster. He was constantly stopping to check from the numerous TV screens that he was not needed in the chamber and hailing all and sundry as he whisked us towards Westminster Hall. His energy was matched only by the generosity with his time.

As always it was so good to be working with an old colleague from TO - Alf was interviewed by Rebecca Taylor for Jewish Renaissance Magazine, and sitting in on the interview was a great pleasure.
