It's not hard to find great photos of the legendary British film director, Alfred Hitchcock. He wasn't exactly the shy, retiring type. With this Hitchcock portrait I wanted to play with a couple of things. Firstly it was important for me to find a source photo with a cheeky look, mainly because I get the impression a lot of his publicity photos were very tongue in cheek and partly because I like the juxtaposition between those often silly photos and his frequently terrifying and haunting films. Secondly I wanted the portrait to be in colour but to have a very black and white feel too.
