‘The only person I really believe in is me’ Debbie Harry

‘I started shooting Debbie in 1977 when she first came to London. The music press office would call and ask if I wanted to do pictures of people they were promoting and one day they were sending this new girl from New York – a ‘punk princess’ is how they described her. This was a real turning point in my career. I’d just come away from journalism and started shooting in studio. I wanted to be a photo journalist and I didn’t see myself doing studio work, but the close ups of these photographs were really well received and it convinced me that shooting famous people could be fun. When Debbie walked in I was knocked out by how she looked. She’d just brought the clothes you see here – the leotard and wedge shoes. Those shoes still make me laugh. I didn’t entirely give up on photo journalism (I did Band Aid with Bob Geldof, so I touched on it again) but it becomes increasingly difficult to go into photo journalism, when you go down another path.’ Brian Aris
