She's been there; she still is there; she knows a thing or two...

I've been a follower/admirer of Sarah's work for decades.

That being said I thought this video sucked. I get the concept of the production, but it did little to enhance my appreciation of her work.

Besides that I thought your weren't partial to photo themed videos Rob.

I loved her from the first time she hit Britsh Vogue. However, not everyone is that familiar with her oeuvre, so I thought this could give a reasonably good tasting, as it were. IMO, her best stuff came with the Pirelli '72 calendar and also Cacharel. If anything, I feel that after that initial period she became a little bit too 'in a world of her own', so to speak. But, she has the clout to make that work for her.

Shortly before I left the UK at the start of the 80s I was in London and met Derek Forsyth, the AD during that first period of Pirelli productions; we spoke about them for a while and I dared the opinion that Sarah's was the best of them. Apparently, it was, in fact, the least well-received!

Not sure about the comment regarding the type of video: quite often the images, left to their own devices, are more eloquent that their parent, but in her case, I find that she sings a close echo to the stuff inside my own dome. I mean, that being so, how can I argue with my own shadow? But that my photography could be as expressively eloquent as hers, though!
