5. James Riddell, London, Per Lui, 1986

MT: I was trained by the late Franca Sozzani and she’d say, “I have 20 pages, and I have a $4,000 budget, that is with your fee included. You can do anything you want with it!” $4,000 doesn’t get you very far, so I had to beg everybody – “can you lend me your house, can your daughter work for free?!” The interesting thing is, we worked a lot, but not every single day was paid. Those unpaid jobs are often the most exciting jobs.
