6. Edie Campbell, London, British Vogue, 2016

MT: I came to live here back in the 70s with three friends of mine. I have to say that if it wasn’t for them, I probably wouldn’t be here. My parents sent me money for a while and then they stopped sending me money. A friend of mine was still receiving money from his parents, so he said, “I’ll pay for the development of your photography.” He did that for four months because it was very expensive at the time; without that, I probably wouldn’t be here. My friend Lucinda Chambers was the editor of British Vogue and they had vouchers for lunch, and of course I showed up every single day at 1 o’clock – “Hi, what are you doing?” That egg sandwich lasted for a large part of the day!
