Picture This: A Horse & A Squirrel In Love

LATE NIGHT SURPRISE:
Horace was all ready for bed when he heard a knock at the door. When he opened it he couldn't believe his eyes. It was Agnes! "I took an early train" she said.

Flashback: Raw Celebrities In Johnny Rozsa’s Untouched

Leigh Bowery

I met photographer Johnny Rozsa about 15 years ago when I hired him to do a ambitious (very low-budget) photo shoot in two cities, no less. He did an amazing job and we became friends straight away. He's the kind of irresistible character that you want to be friends with. He was born and raised in Nairobi. "Living in Kenya made me curious,” he ... See the Rest
