I wouldn’t be able to imagine if the meaning would be the same had that Yahoo! article not been written. Francis was one of the first people that was approached to help promote Cynthia’s last gigs. I’m just guessing it’s because he knows Cynthia very well and has toured with her before, which is something that bonds people and can never be leveled up to any amount of right questions in an interview. As a photographer I have witnessed this kind of unity in other bands as well and when you are given that trust you decide to either protect your own interests or protect the music. Obviously the struggles I constantly witness in the scene over the course of many years have made me decide to protect the musicians, most of the time leaning towards their support, but not to the point of blind loyalty even though I have countless times sacrificed my own artistic integrity.
Because these days it isn’t the things I share that I find important, but the things that I keep to myself.
