Facts On Photographers Share Share on Twitter Facebook Info Commissioned by AnOther magazine to illustrate ten facts about some of the worlds greatest photographers, set designer Gemma Tickle and I created a series of images that set out to visualize these following facts: 1. Mary McCartney – Mary McCartney’s dream dining companion would be William Eggleston. “I’d cook him a big cheesy pie with onions, rosemary and crushed new potatoes, with a big chopped salad.” 2. Norman Parkinson – He and his wife, Wenda, moved to Tobago in 1963, where they set up a pig farm and sold sausages. 3. Bruce Weber – Cindy Crawford is the only model he ever sent home from a shoot. 4. Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott – When Helmut Newton died the duo made a little shrine to him out of cactuses out the back of their house in Ibiza. 5. Juergen Teller – In his teens he abandoned an apprenticeship making bridges for violins (the family trade) after he developed an allergy to the wood involved. He turned to photography and enrolled at Munich’s Bayerische Staatslehranstalt für Photographie in 1984. 6. Wiliam Eggleston – William Eggleston had the same doctor as Elvis, doctor Dr. Nick or Dr. George Nichopoulus. 7. Guy Bourdin – As his first job, he worked as an illustrator for fashion designer Roy Halston Frowick.
