I was at the bank the other day and found this copy on the coffee table while I was waiting to open an account. Spectrum Magazine photo editor Randi Silberman had the idea of photographing the director of HP Labs Prith Banerjee in the company cafeteria because he really is a "man of the people" style CEO. The p.r. folks needed some convincing...but we really couldn't provide a good enoug reason to them for this approach. In the end I think they were so confused by the request they just surrendered. I never usually like the results of shooting these corporate guys, the shots always seem so grand...so "us and them". But this shot I kinda like. Sitting across the table from anyone really just seems to level the playing field and loosens everyone up.
