“The image on the right is from a series of photos of roses that I took in London. I noticed them in London everywhere I looked, and to me, they’re classic but also a bit heavy. The image was inspired by the cover of the New Order album, on the left, which juxtaposes classical references with contemporary graphics. The painting on the cover is by Henri Fantin-Latour, and obviously Peter Saville repurposed it. So I shot a series of roses at dusk to incorporate the heavy, dark, dusky feeling of the record and the cover. I did a series of maybe five of these photos, and they’re some of my personal favorites.”
