Interview: Platon and Putin

We've featured Platon before, what with the Eliot Spitzer photo, and the cool videos on his site. I love his simple lighting, and even more so his entire approach to portraiture.

If you have ever been nervous before a big shoot, you'll really appreciate his video interview about shooting Vladimir Putin for Time's Man of the Year cover. Every time I hear Platon talk it makes me want to re-think my whole approach to shooting people.

Thanks much to Rob over at APE for the heads-up.
