If you’ve ever scrolled through a slideshow of celebrity photos from the ’90s, you’ve seen photographer Dave Benett’s work. He’s the man behind iconic images of Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss, Prince and David Bowie, and The Spice Girls. You name a ’90s icon; he’s photographed them in some of their most candid moments. Originally from London, Benett began photographing in 1977 at the age of 19 whatever was in the news: “It would be football, crime scenes, bank robberies, or someone’s wedding all in the same week,” he recalls. He quickly discovered though that his photographs of celebrities made not only more money, but also allowed his images to be seen globally. He went on to pioneer the paparazzi craze, back when there were only ten or so guys standing outside an event. “There was a lot of fun in the ’90s,” he says. “Parties were still unpredictable we’d often have unrestricted access to characters known for their spontaneous behavior. In a lot of ways, it was the last time people weren’t so uptight. Pre-social media, there was so much less scrutiny over every aspect of life.” Benett has a thriving Instagram account, however, where commenters share memories and millennials re-discover the decade. Here, he shares his own favorites.
