Bjork photographed by Phil Nicholls
Photoshoot: 2 December 1993
Location: Rennes, France
"I took the option of travelling by road to Rennes Festival in France rather than flying. It seemed like fun at the time but terrible traffic due to some kind of strike-action in the country meant I turned up hours late for my shoot with Bjork. She’d begun television interviews by the time I arrived but thankfully agreed to a shoot the following morning."
"A backdrop taped to the wall in her hotel room had to suffice and I shot only 20 frames. Patiently, she ate a sandwich between my moments of panic as the travel adaptor attached to my lighting was blown out of the wall after every couple of frames due to dodgy wiring." Phil Nicholls
