1999. Whist visiting magazines in NY I got a call from the Observer:
“Do you want to photograph Robin Williams tomorrow? We have half an hour at the Dorchester..?”
I cut my trip short and touched down in London on the morning of the shoot.
Arriving at the hotel with the writer William Leith, we were informed by his people:
“No. You have half an hour for the interview & 5 minutes for pictures… if we have time”
Here are a selection of portraits from that frenzied session.
The last image taken on my Leica, was with his minder/publicist who threatened to throw me out of the window if I didn’t finish the shoot…
