10. Mick Jagger, Madonna and Tony Curtis, Vanity Fair Oscar Night Party, Los Angeles, 1997

DJ: At first Mick was sitting by himself looking bored, and then Madonna crossed the room to sit down next to him. He came to life and became quite animated. Then Tony Curtis came along and sat down at the same table and started monopolising Madonna. I find it difficult to do a meaningful picture of a party so knew immediately that this was it. But at the time I was upset that this picture wasn’t published. Ten years later Terence Pepper selected it for the Vanity Fair portraits exhibition which opened at the National Portrait Gallery.
