Aural autobiography

Recorded by Richard West for Source Magazine

August 2009

September 6th, 2009Stephen Mayes

I talked with Richard West, editor of Ireland’s Source Magazine, about my mongrel career that started as a paparazzi photographer for the British tabloids and the privilege of working with some of the finest artists and photographers of the late 20th and early 21st Centuries. The dirty vicar of Penn, Damien Hirst, Steven Meisel, Christopher Morris and others get name checks in this strange adventure that has taught me about art, commerce, technology and everything that makes photography so rich and rewarding.
