Managed to catch this show at the NGV which included Portraits by an old friend Rod McNicol, love this one of the iconic Jack Charles from the film Bastardy. Rod did this shoot for me in 2002 of my Winter collection; he was my neighbour in Smith St, Fitzroy then. He only ever used natural light in his studio/ which poured in from old glass ceilings which his oversize plants used to lap up/ he loved that colour GREEN of the plants, the same colour as his background wall which was his permanent fixture; his spot of provenance. The only fashion shoot Rod has ever done; I feel fortunate to have these amazing portraits as part of my collection.
