These sessions were always busy, creative and incredibly productive and a trusting relationship was established over many years. Paul also went on many location shoots with the band, getting inspiration from Robert and the many interesting surroundings they found themselves in."AS THIS BOOK SHOWS, THE 'LOOK' OF THE VARIOUS INCARNATIONS OF THE CURE, THROUGH MANY DIFFERENT PERIODS, IS INEXTRICABLY LINKED TO PAUL'S PICTURES; HIS VISION, EXPERTISE AND PATIENCE PLAYED A HUGE PART IN PORTRAYING US, NOT JUST AS WE WANTED TO BE, BUT AS WE REALLY WERE.AN EXCELLENT PHOTOGRAPHER, AND AN EXCELLENT MAN... AND A VERY GOOD JOB HE WASN'T PUT OFF BY THE VERY WEIRD JOB THAT WAS THE CURE ON TOP OF THE POPS IN 1980!" Robert Smith
QuotePhotographer Paul Cox, who has released a new book of his images of The Cure, has spoken to NME about his experience of working with the band and his correspondence with frontman Robert Smith over the years."Robert is a very down to earth person – a normal bloke – but he has a presence when he walks into a room. He knows what he wants and nothing is going to stand in the way of how he presents himself. He won't do interviews for the sake of it, he won't do pictures for the sake of it; there always has to be a reason and he'll put his all into it.Quizzed on if he had any inside knowledge on 'Songs Of A Lost World', Cox replied: "No, not at all! Haven't they been working on a couple of albums? I know one was supposed to come out back in the autumn, but I can understand why it didn't. Sometimes you won't hear from him for three months at a time, then he'll come back with shitloads all at once! A lot of personal things have happened in his life over the last few years, and he just puts his priorities in the right place."
