David Yarrow: “The Pioneer bar in Virginia City has offered so much to us over the years and we are acutely conscious not to overplay our hand here. Equally it’s the best bar known to us for our work. It has depth and the wagon wheel on the ceiling is ideally positioned. Last year I was honoured to receive “The Freedom of the City” and having the keys in my briefcase makes a material difference.
It’s important to bring a new variable each time we go back, to create a transcendental image. This time, it was Cara Delevingne. To bring such a celebrated woman to Montana is fresh ground. My directives for her stylists were: bad ass; sexy; sovereign; 1920s but still very much Cara, which they absolutely nailed it, and as did she. The hat made a huge difference.
With such limited light, the depth of field and shutter speeds were compromised in this photograph. Cara would always be sharp, but the rest was down to luck - you are pushing the camera right to the edge of its capability. I can’t think of any other woman in the world I would prefer to play this role. Cara owns this shot”.
