Borthwick was born in London but lives with his partner, fashion designer Maria Cornejo, in Brooklyn, New York, where they have been based for more than 20 years. The early '90s were spent in Paris where he bought a nightclub and began making photographs for Purple magazine, which was founded there in '92. Music, travel, food, song, poetry and image are for Borthwick a creative and meaningful continuum.. Chance, beauty and the natural world are the tenets by which he lives and makes work.
