Andy Bell and Vince Clark, stand amongst the chrome and perspex phone booths, at Waterloo Railway Station. Andy, elegantly attired in a plasticised check suit, turns to one side, casually leaning against a phone in the foreground. Vince, in working jacket and jeans, peers out, partially hidden amongst the tech landscape, as if in backroom/stage mode. The mixed lights shimmer on, and though, the many reflective metal and transparent surfaces of the “future” of the phone-booth. Using available light it was a fast, hit-and-run shoot. The location having been pre-selected from polaroids I had shot a few days earlier. This shoot for Mute Records, included the “In My Arms” single sleeve shot.
