John Micklethwait editor in chief at the Economist

From a recent shoot with the editor of the Economist newspaper for L'Express magazine. Unusually for this type of shoot we had quite a bit of time (30 minutes or so) , which was great. The writer should have arrived at the same time as me but was delayed, this gave me more time than the normal frantic 5- 15 minutes.

I was presented with quite a typical corporate uninspiring office in the economist building but did think to take a background just in case. This is what the magazine choose here and decided to turn the portrait black and white for greater impact. I think it works with the full bleed image and text. I did take some looser style shots which are in the portrait section of the website.
