Une sÃ©rie prise Ã Londres en dÃ©cembre 1994 (source):
I met Radiohead when they first came to America with the « Creep » single. We were going to do a shoot together and they were really happy with the photos. So when they were coming to town, they would call me and we would hang out and I would shoot photos, whether it was social or I had an assignment. I think itâ€™s important that youâ€™re choosy about what photos you publish, that you make sure everybodyâ€™s comfortable. Some people enjoy trying to get the scandalous photos out there and putting people in compromising positions but thatâ€™s just not my style.
Danny Clinch: I donâ€™t really try to push people to do something that theyâ€™re not interested in doing but I like to instigate them to get excited about what weâ€™re doing, start to throw ideas around and then it becomes a collaboration, Like the photo of Radiohead I took back in the day. We were doing a shoot for a magazine and everybody was sitting on this bench on the side of the street on 6th Avenue and Thom Yorke stood up. I asked him to stand on the bench and I shot a couple of frames. He said, ‘How â€˜bout this?,’ leaped into the air and did a big karate kick and so I shot that frame and he only did it once. Heâ€™s hanging in the air above the rest of the band and it was a spontaneous moment.
« We were hanging around 6th Avenue, downtown. I had them all on this bench and I really liked that wall. I had Thom standing on the bench and I was like, ‘What if you put your arms off and started to fall and I get down really low?’ He just jumped off the bench. I asked him to do it one more time. There’s basically two frames, but in the other one Johnny’s face is covered by Thom’s foot. That was it. It was really a one-off.
