Mika collaborated with long-time friend and renowned fashion photographer, Peter Lindbergh to create this stunning visual accompaniment to ‘Last Party’, making this Lindbergh’s first ever music video. Complementing the simplicity of the track itself, Lindbergh’s minimalistic approach to shooting his subjects resulted in a breath-taking video that paints Mika in a new light.
On the video Mika said “This collaboration was born naturally and out of friendship. Peter wanted to capture me in complete honesty and as naturally as possible. Simplicity and emotion being one of the hardest things to achieve, it was only with someone like Peter that I could let my guard down so much. The photos were done first and then came the idea of bringing them to life with ‘a photo that talks to you’. We booked the same studio and with the same crew we shot the Last Party video a few weeks later.
Working and knowing Peter is an honour. He is brilliant but more than anything he is kind. His kindness and devilish spirit find their way through every one of his pictures. When you sit for him and it clicks, you end up learning more about yourself.”
