i shot this image during a trip to new york more than 10 years ago. paul wignall is a model who i became friends with, as we both hailed from and worked together in southern california. paul would go on to work for gucci and yves saint laurent as fashion’s ‘it’ boy.
This is me meeting Professor Paul Wignall at the Liverpool Geology society’s Herdman Symposium today. He’s one of the principal researchers of the Permian-Triassic mass extinction, and told me a lot about the Siberian Traps and the effects of flood basalts on life.
