The guy can 'acknowledge his frustration' with the best of them! Congrats Charles, great photo.


Tom Oldham for Black Francis, a B&W portrait, originally taken for MOJO Magazine, of Pixies frontman Charles Thompson [aka Black Francis]. When approaching the assignment Oldham, an experienced portrait photographer, was painfully aware of the many photoshoots his sitter has been the subject of and asked him to acknowledge his frustration with the process. The resulting image, picturing the singer digging his hands into his face, offered the perfect gesture and ran as the lead image for the article.

That's a great photo of Frank! I'd like to know the story behind it; was it posed or chance? I'd like to see the rejects.
