In this episode, Dave Koppel relates some of the extraordinary capers he got up to while working as a paparazzo in the London of the 1980s and ’90s taking photos of the likes of Bowie, Brando, Jagger, Dylan, Cruise, Prince et al. He explains how he then bought a gallery and began photographing landscapes and portraits of ordinary people for his book Still Waters. Recently, he has been re-versioning some of his old work into what he calls Pap Art, and collaborating with other artists too.
