Phil Jupitus and The Big Society. Portraits for The Independent.

A few days before Christmas I joined The Independent’s Jon Brown to interview comedian Phil Jupitus. The interview was centred on Phil’s upcoming musical, Big Society! which premieres at the newly restored Leeds City Varieties later this month. Produced by the Red Ladder theatre company, the musical centres on the exploits of a variety show cast in a country presided over by an ageing monarch, run by an elitist government of public schoolboys and bedevilled by a corrupt media establishment.

I was lucky to have more time than usual with this shoot, as a rule we get some time during the interview for ‘talking heads’ and then time for one other setup. As it happens, on this occasion Phil invited us to join him while he was carol singing with the anti-capitalist protesters in Queens Sq (photo published in the Independent). I then found an old building site next door the rehearsal studio, this one just felt like a black & white portrait for me…
