Nick Cave, Southwark 1984.

Thursday, 22 April 2010 I suppose Nick Cave is close to being the perfect subject for any photographer. For a start he’s particularly photogenic. And he seems to like photography (his wife Susie Bick was once a top model). Also, although he’d undoubtedly deny it, he actually seems to like to have his photograph taken. So he’ll usually go the extra mile to help you get an interesting image. Not that that’s particularly hard with Nick, since he always engages with the camera so well. Not to say gurns, occasionally. This photograph was from the second session I ever did with him.
