I saw Jake Bugg for the first time in the Borderline, a club close to my house. He was totally unknown at the time, and I found his work very refreshing. He didn’t have a recording contract yet which means he was very easy to approach. We came to an agreement and I made a series of about forty classic photographs. If he ever becomes great, they will be like the old Dylan photo sessions.
The session with the young Jake Bugg was so pure. We want to record the person when he is still fresh, not bitter yet and ruined by the business. Every photographer looks for this purity. ― Kevin Westenberg
