Today is Sjón’s birthday, may he live another 50 years. Happy Birthday!
Sjón is a wonderful poet and writer, a massive influence on me in my formative years, a frequent collaborator with Björk and an all around wonderful friend and human being. I’m a better man for knowing him. Thank you.
D. Foy wrote an essay for my photography book Laundromat. This shot is taken in my studio in Brooklyn. It was really a session for his then girlfriend, soon to be wife, dancer Jeanine Durning, but he snuck in. Very contemplative and relaxed portrait. His first novel “Made To Break” will be out on Two Dollar Radio early 2014.
