When Irish Eyes Are Smiling

Helena Christensen has revealed her idea behind photographing Bono with his face semi-submerged in water. The photo of Bono is featured in the supermodel’s first photo exhibition, which opened today in London (see Bono’s Supermodel Pose).

“I knew that I wanted to photograph his eyes, because I think since I was very young and since I ever knew about U2, Bono’s eyes have been so mesmerising, they’re so magnetic. I kind of just had the idea of putting him against a dark background and a black pool. I also like having him in the pool and being able to stand up there and control him!”
