Oooh a real treat on the blog today, Rachel is excited! You know why? Because she’s got the Jack! Yeah, that’s an AC/DC reference, mmhm.

OK, in all seriousness, pay attention here. This is a multi-layered blog attack and you’re going to need all your brain cells. Put the Scrabulous down. Above is a picture of Mr. Andrew Hetherington. Aside from being a rather fantastic photographer, he’s also become a mainstay of this cozy little photography blogtown with whatsthejackanory. I was reading this thing back when I was in blog diapers, and I’ve learned a lot.

SO, today Mr. Hetherington has an image featured in Jen Bekman’s genius 20×200. I’m not going to tell you which picture, but it’s on this page somewhere, and it rhymes with shoo(t).

In honor of this awesome and auspicious event, I’ve asked Mr. Hetherington 20 quick questions.

Here’s an additional exciting bit:

If you can identify the man who is not Mr. Hetherington in question 17, you will win one of Mr. Hetherington’s books. Two are available.
