Andy Cotterill has spent many years with larger than life characters of all kinds, photographing them for the likes of Sony Music, Dazed and Confused, Mojo Magazine, and Q. It's mental health awareness week and ahead of the launch of our illustration/photography collaboration, 'Lend Me Your Ear,' we sit down to discuss why we wanted to celebrate identity, creativity and self-expression through our skills. Andy shares some brilliant stories about the likes of Kanye West, Pink, FKA Twigs and Jarvis Cocker among many others and it's a great insight into the warmth that epitomises his work. We also touch upon why we wanted to shout about the mind and the great work that Young Urban Arts Foundation and CALM do through the project.
