|SATURATION by Andrea Seghedoni|
We did not meet until January 2009 when he outlined an idea of creating a spider's web made of magnetic tape in which I would be held either naked or wearing a suit. He decided on the latter because it represented where I used to be in my work as a lawyer.
The shoot took place on 29th January 2009 at his studio in Tottenham (Come on you Spurs) and he cooked me a delicious lunch and we drank wine and good coffee. Afterwards, he edited the photographs and we chose our favourite then and there. I love the flash of light across my left eye - it is like a gash of silver opening up my head to reveal the darkness inside and to allow the light to get in.
Andrea said afterwards that the picture revealed a very austere lawyer and the tension in my working life.
