this is david mcdermott of the painting team of mcdermott and mcgough (david & peter respectively). this portrait was photographed as part of an interview for index magazine that ran in 2002. peter halley hired me to do the job. it was one of my first editorial assignments. to this day it’s probably one of the more interesting and quirky afternoons i have spent photographing someone. they were very cool and very supportive for people so well established in the art world. david asked me to shoot these poses of him in order to submit them to a nude hot yoga class he was attempting to enroll in.
