9 Lives ads






I have seen my photographs in The London Underground, on the back of buses and in the usual places. This is the first time they have been plastered around the bus!! Not the original shots for the buses but pretty cool still. :) I will know that I hit iconic if I could ever shoot a photo as famous as the one of Che Gevara.

Seeing your images on the bus is very cool.

I think the Che portrait struck a chord with people because they associate the image with idea of idealistic youth that Che embodied through in his Motorcycle Diaries.

As a standalone portrait with no context, I'm not sure it would have become an icon. But I guess the same could be said of most of the images we consider to be iconic?
