“Looking at these photographs now, I see the influence of those I have admired: of Man Ray, who was so generous to me with help, advice and friendship; of Brandt, of Horst and Hoyningen-Huene; and of Imogen Cunningham, who demonstrated to the world that to find interesting subject-matter for photography one need never stray from the back garden. All art is a process of accretion, a building upon what has gone before -sometimes consciously, sometimes unconsciously – and I would like to thank the photographers mentioned above and many others for the inspiration of their work.” Pat Booth. Brilliant book of self (ie?) nudes. Foreword by Allen Jones.
