December 14, 2018:
Andy spoke about how this specific photograph came to life:
I was in town to photograph him to be part of Greenpeace/Vivienne Westwood’s SAVE THE ARCTIC campaign. Tom and I got on like a house on fire and we spoke of my other projects I was shooting at the time. He loved the iCons project so I suggested we should shoot a portrait for that too. I knew he was also preparing for playing Hank Williams in I SAW THE LIGHT, so I wanted quite a thoughtful and provoking shot. We played with hands on the face and creative ways to frame the face. At one point he looked very peaceful and closed his eyes. ‘click’ I knew I had a great shot.
Andy even raffled off the shirt that Tom wore in the Save the Arctic photoshoot!
His prints doubly raised money for Unicef since we also used them as prizes in our Unicef UK fundraiser.
