Marilyn Monroe, photographed during shooting for Some Like It Hot (1959). 'She was nice, smart, kind of amusing, and very approachable. Not a bimbo at all'
New York City, 1948. 'I don't know what it is that gives some pictures their magic, although the test is whether it really hits you and gives you a strong emotion'
New York City, 1984. 'Although the magazines that do these kinds of stories are long gone, the idea is as valid now as it ever was. I am still perpendicular, so I am still taking pictures'
Paris, 1989. 'Photography is pretty simple stuff. You just react to what you see, and take many, many pictures'
This last comment is the most pertinent. I agree, If you take 50 photos, you stand a much better chance of success than if you take 5.
A must see exhibition at Hackle Bury Fine Art and you can see images here as well as reading his story.
