“There didn’t need to be a reason to do a photo shoot. I was a camera fiend and Freddie was a great camera subject. We’d be hanging out together and Freddie would say “come over tomorrow and let’s take some pictures.”

This was Freddie in his front room in Holland Road. The kimono came from a second hand store; Freddie didn’t have any money at that time and became good at roaming around markets and second hand stores.

Celia my make-up girl was holding a mirror to reflect the light coming in the window from Holland Road to create that zigzag of light wich hits his eyes.”
