Mario Lautier Vella is a cross-disciplinary artist based in London. Last Friday he commissioned me to take some photographs of him. Mario had a good idea of what he wanted to achieve. From time to time we stopped to discuss what we’d got, but he pretty much directed the shoot. It was a novel experience for me, and one I really enjoyed. We took about thirty shots and this is my favourite.
Mario will be performing ‘In Love’ at the latest art:language:location event in Cambridge in the Autumn. To get a taste of his work in the meantime, I strongly urge you to visit Mario’s website, where strange things are happening involving the Duchess of Cambridge.
