A couple of weeks after I first met Slim, he turned up at a street fair on Chester avenue. I was there to shoot OP Stylee because Paul and Daniel liked the photographs I took at the Moonlight Lounge and invited me to do more. The entire course of my photographic career shifted in those few weeks. Prior to this, I was mainly working on a conceptual project and just plain drifting around town making pictures. I still enjoy photographing large gatherings, I think. I just haven’t done it in years.
These old pictures of Slim make me remember his sense of humor; it’s interesting to see some of these because I didn’t print them at the time I shot them. I was working on so many different things that I didn’t dwell on any of the individual sets for long. Now, it is really fun to see them as a slide show.
