Bill Zygmant was born with a cleft palette, which made it difficult to talk. “I remember that I went to the Saturday morning Matinee, and then to watch Spurs (Tottenham Hotspur Football Club) in the afternoon. At the pictures, I saw the film stars being photographed and knew I couldn’t be a film star, so I decided that I would become a photographer; I would let the photographs speak for me.”
Bill Zygmant has so many photographs, choosing the ones for the book wasn’t easy, so the ones we have chosen are still just some of Bill’s portfolio. He told me that he didn’t want just another book of photographs, so I suggested we had conversations around the photographs to give context to them. Bill is a great storyteller, so with many of the photos, where he remembers the session, we have Bill’s memories. To give added context, I have provided some historical and relevant background to the subject of the photographs too.
Bill wanted his book of photographs to be different: not just another boring book of photos. So we enlisted the help of artist and designed Paul Skellett to bring Bill’s photos into a new dimension.
