Kate Simon on Joe Strummer

Today's Punk: Photography phone call is with iconic punk image-maker Kate Simon. Interviewed by Nick Knight, she spoke about the natural progression from photographing close friends to documenting a momentous cultural movement, her love for photographing people sleeping and her feelings on Joe himself.

'I know that everybody loves Joe, and for once everybody's right. I remember once Joe called me up here in New York, and I told him that I was feeling kind of depressed and he said 'stay there, I'll come right over'. And he came right over and he sat down at my typewriter and typed out these lyrics, which I still have. And I just thought, well that's a pretty nice friend'

Listen to Simon's call now!
