There are times when I wonder why I shoot for The Wire. This English magazine that showcases “difficult” music will not be seen by prospective clients in the U.S., and if I’m to be honest with myself, probably not my British ones either. But I understand why when the issue arrives in the mail; with great design, an excellent edit and well printed, my work feels very much at home here – The Wire reminds me why I became an editorial photographer in the first place.
The current issue features Oneohtrix Point Never; my sixteenth story for them, and the sixth cover. I first worked with Design Directors Jon Forss and Kjell Ekhorn, and now with Ben Weaver. All along headed up by publisher (and guardian of the institution) Tony Herrington.
