That was taken at the Tibetan Freedom Concert. I’m a huge fan of her music and of her personally. I remember her publicist or her manager coming over to me and saying, "OK, we’re going to bring Bjork by, and she really doesn’t have a lot of time to do this, but we wanted to do this." She’s just so intense ; she’s just so present that she just looked into the camera — talk about just a simple photograph that works. Her presence is so strong, you can just stare into her eyes for a long time and not get bored, even though the picture is so simple. I think I shot half a roll of film and a couple of Polaroids, and she walked away. That’s what I remember about that, it was just a couple of frames, and when I got my film back I just thought, "That’s beautiful, she’s beautiful."
