ICON

Elaine Constantine
chosen by Ewen Spencer

Each issue we invite a different person to select their icon and write some choice words about why they hold them in such high regard. For issue #4 we invited photographer and filmmaker Ewen Spencer to select his icon and he wrote a touching and personal ode to Elaine Constantine.

The pair first met at an all-nighter in 1995 and then spoke again in 1999 when they both worked on a story for The Face about the UK Garage scene. Elaine became a hugely supportive figure in Ewen’s life and career, as he states, “Elaine was godlike to me as a photographer.”
