3. What’s the most exciting thing you’re working on right now?

I recently shot portraits of proto-punk legend Wayne Kramer (co-founder of MC5) for the back cover of his forthcoming autobiography; as well as shooting portraits of MC50, the latest configuration of the band that he leads.

If I may turn that around, I would love to have assisted (or been coffee-boy, whatever) for Richard Avdedon or Irving Penn.
