Robert Smith, Ireland, 1987 Robert was staying out in Ireland and I went out there to show him the artwork for The Cure In Orange film. He said, “Bring a camera”, so I took a polaroid camera because he likes to approve stuff there and then. I took him round the grounds of this old ruined castle in the freezing cold and we took loads of pictures. He was incredibly relaxed – they’re not posed, we didn’t work that way.
Everybody destroys themselves during a certain period of their life and I consider that to be completely normal. I still recognise myself when I look into the mirror, but I understand how stupid I am. Lots of people don’t.
