‘I met Patti backstage and we hung out and talked as I took photos. Patti was trying on different hats and scarves, finally saying, ‘Do you think we’ve got it?’ I said, ‘We’ve got some nice images so far, but what I think they’re really looking for is a portrait.’ Patti walked into the bathroom and standing next to the toilet she asked, ‘How is this for a portrait?’
