  • Jill Furmanovsky: By the time The Police Greatest Hits was conceived, it was impossible to arrange to have the band together in one place. I shot the portrait of Andy Summers in my studio in New York, Stewart was photographed at his country house in the English countryside. I was finally called to photograph Sting at his Hampstead home. He was pumped from working out in his gym in the basement and looked great, confident and at ease in his physicality. Every shot was amazing.
