Neville Brody

The V&A’s examination of postmodernism in style, design, graphics, photography, etc comes to an end this week.

It’s given me the opportunity to reflect on a shot I did of Neville Brody for Design Magazine at his Tottenham Court Road studio. The art director who commissioned me, Neil Braidwood, has written about it elsewhere…┬áThe nice thing with Neil’s blog is that it allows you to see the image in context.

At the time I naturally knew Neville Brody’s work and yet he was rumoured to be a very difficult subject. However he took to the concept that Neil & I had in mind of shooting him from inside a TV set whilst eating popcorn and wielding a remote control. The rest took care of itself.
