Yesterday we told you about fashion photographer extraordinaire Ellen Rogers' fantastic new book, Aberrant Necropolis. Today, she answers our five questions. Readysetgo:

1. Who would be your dream subject to shoot?

Possibly amongst many many things, Aleister Crowley and any of his scarlet women during his time in Mexico.

2. What's the last book you read + give us 3 words to describe it.

Umm, I read a few books at a time, but the last one I really liked was We Have Always Lived in the Castle - my friend Annie gave it to me. Three-hundred words could come close to describing it, but just three is careless. How about: do read it ?

3. Best advice you've ever been given?

"Don't be part of a snuff movie". My mother told me this when I was five, she graphically detailed this to me in the hope that I would be sufficiently scared off ever doing it - needless to say it worked. However it has left me with a history of graphic and worrying visions since childhood. I love that woman so much, RIP.

4. What are you doing this weekend?

I will be meeting a makeup artist. Makeup artists, from my experience, are some of the nicest people in the world. Then I am packing all my belongings. My new favourite hobby is moving house; I have done it three times this year already.

5. Recommend your favourite bar in the world.

I don't drink, or socialise or like people, or bars, or the world.

And there you have it. Ellen Rogers, we love you.
