Portrait of Rolf harris with his wife and daughter

posted in: Misc | 0


Rolf Harris, the entertainer, has just been convicted of assaulting young girls with further allegations to come.

Over twenty years ago I photographed him in his house by the Thames for the Sunday Times magazine. He was quite pleasant enough. On the coffee table was a Stylograph (a musical toy he used to advertise on TV when I was a kid) and also aboriginal flint circumcision knife with a serrated edge.

While getting in his car to drive me back to the train station he did his back in. I sent him a print and he sent me back a thank you letter with a cartoon of himself drawn on the envelope.
