I thought it was going to be pretty straight forward shooting Art Basel because Philippe made it seem so easy when he went there to shoot some pics before our colleague’s leaving drinks party. He filed 8 photos within an hour of deciding that he would go before the drinks and not during them. They were all damn good as usual. It took me ages to just get the first photo here! Anyway, here are some that I filed – apart from the last one, which I felt a bit too loud for the wire. I quite like it though and kinda wish I had sent it to the desk now. That’s fine though – I guess you should listen to yourself if you’re doubting whether or not to send a picture.
