The late Guy Bourdin was a protege of Man Ray, and he heavily influenced many of Thornton's photographs. In the words of Johnny, "Guy was a ground breaking image maker in the 1950's through to the 1980's. I worked in Malcolm Ryan's studios in Macklin Street, just off Bow Street at the same time as Guy in the 70's. It was far from a salubrious affair. I asked him why he liked the studios so much and he replied, "Because it's so shitty"."
