[on some favourite things, 2011:] I’ve got a couple of favourite cameras, but the Leica M7 is the one I like to carry with me at all times. Otherwise I end up using my iPhone camera. I prefer to stick with film so the mistakes I make aren’t just white-washed by digital life. Another favourite belonging is a postcard of Francis Bacon in Primrose Hill. It’s a place I visit nearly every day and is close to where I live; it’s where I think and breathe. It’s great to see the park in the 1960s and realise nothing has really changed. I also have a ‘Kiss Me Quick Hat’ which is a memento from Nowhere Boy (2009) [Taylor Wood’s directorial debut]. I didn’t keep much paraphernalia from the film but this was special as they day we used it, everything was going really well. It brings back good memories. My Andy Warhol book is also very special to me – he’s definitely an inspiration for me, especially in my film work. I love his ability to break rules. There’s also The Velvet Underground and Nico LP – one of the best covers ever. And inside, some of the best music, ever.
