Jackson #2361, 2011 tristanstill
Newtown, NSW, Australia, 31/10/2011 Leica M9, Leica Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH f2, 1/500, ISO160 Iridient Developer, Adobe® Photoshop CC2017 http://tristanstill.com I first met Jackson many years ago in a squatted tug-boat office in Balmain, Australia, on a particularly picturesque part of Sydney harbour. Back then he had a different name, but he still had the same broad smile, and a glint in his eyes that was equal parts an inviting kind of joyfulness and mischievousness. Half quiet, reserved and thoughtful, half the eternal extravert – when I asked Jackson about taking his portrait and submitting it to a high profile portrait prize his response was simply – ‘Make me famous!’.
