Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Beck Hansen came to the attention of mainstream audience in 1994 with his breakthrough single Loser. Some critics described his lyrical aesthetic to a post-modern Bob Dylan sensibility. The four time platinum and two Grammy Awards artist had records labels killing to sign him, but of all the labels he chose Geffen Records, though they offered him less money – he chose creative freedom instead and for that we admire him for it. The release of Odelay in June 1996 was an instant success and led to his iconic status.

Beck was shot at Click Studios, London.

'I am not the fastest speaking person myself, but watching Beck conduct himself in an interview was interesting. I have never seen a slower speaking interviewee ever; it seemed to take him ages to get his thoughts on any subject. I ended up asking if the interview could be done in front of the camera, just in case I was denied the right amount of time to take the series of portraits I had planned to do.  Beck to his credit was really helpful; hung around the studio and was totally the most chilled out person I have ever met.'
