Photog: "Bono Has … a Bison Head"

“Bono’s actually — even though he’s small, he has this huge — like a bison head, this really big head.”

Poor Bono! That’s how photographer Gregory Heisler describes Bono in a video explaining how he put together the cover shot that TIME magazine used when it named Bono, Bill Gates and Melinda Gates as “persons of the year” back in 2005.

It’s at about the 2:10 mark of the video below, which is interesting overall if you have even a remote interest in photography.

There’s some more background, too, in a post on the Strobist blog.

    So he calls him Bone-o, says he had to stand on a box, *and* he’s got a giant head. LOL. Poor Bono.

    Bono has a “bison head” because he’s a Taurus. Tis true.
