    About The Work

    "The ironing board was already there, but not in front of the flag. I was trying to do an exterior shot but the afternoon was still cold, and Jimmy was reluctant to do the shot outside, on the veranda.

    "We walked about in his studio, discussing different ideas for the shot. He even commented on my determination / obsession to get him on that veranda. We took a break, and in between we had a few drinks. It was a relaxed atmosphere. At this point, I drew the board near to the flag. This provoked the scene I later captured. Jimmy decided to iron his pants. I decided he was much hotter than the iron." — Chico Aragão
