Davide Sorrenti

It was the anniversary of the fashion photographer Davide Sorrenti's death yesterday. I went through a phase of being a bit obsessed with him and James King when I was a teenager. He was one of the photographers who was said to glamorise the heroin chic look and he had such cool ideas about the world. He looked so young because of the illness he suffered from, which was part of the reason that his mother moved the family to New York from Italy when he was young. 
Like River Phoenix one of those lives which was too short. This documentary See Know Evil is being edited and should be done soon, I can't wait. He shot the Calvin Klein Obsession campaign with Kate Moss, this is him with her and an image he shot of James King when they were together.
