After 10 years of working with them, the editors of Time finally gave me a cover assignment to photograph the president of South Korea, Roh Moo Hyun. To my surprise, I was allotted only five minutes with the president. So I hired a model who had similar facial characteristics and photographed him for a few days in my studio to ensure I wouldn’t make any mistakes. Fortunately, I did manage to pull it off, but it felt as if my 20 years of experience as a photographer was put to the test in those 5 minutes. I was glad it was over.
