Baltasar Garzón portrait for Monocle Magazine.
I’ve wanted to shoot for Monocle Magazine for a long time, so it was great to finally get this opportunity. I teamed up with the magazine’s Spain correspondent Liam Aldous, spending a morning with the controversial former high court judge, Baltasar Garzón. Well known in Spain for investigating political corruption, Garzón is known globally for issuing an international warrant for the arrest of former Chilean President Augusto Pinochet for the alleged deaths and torture of Spanish citizens.
It was an interesting experience walking the quiet morning streets of Madrid alongside Garzón. A highly recognisable and divisive figure, a number of passers by were compelled to speak to him – ‘You’re one of the good ones’ said one lady.
Monocle ran my image full page in the September 2014 issue alongside Liam’s interview, for the magazine’s ‘National Icon’ section.
