Photographer: Suki Dhanda

Why did you choose the photographer you worked with?

Suki has worked with me for many years on different projects.  She was the photographer on my world trip when I recorded the album Prophesy and has since become the main portrait photographer for Observer Magazine.  She has an excellent way of capturing a moment with authenticity and integrity.

How did you come across him/her?

I first met Suki when she photographed me for the magazine Straight No Chaser in the early 90’s.  She was very easy going and had a great deal of passion for her craft.

What was it that you wanted to express about yourself?
Why this photo/this composition?

I wanted the photo to capture the most honest representation of my identity and I trusted Suki to help me find that. This particular shot achieved that more than any other on the day.
