A Moment Out Of Time.

Ask me anything  
Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art. It takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.

    The book I’m reading now. Not exactly about “The Crime of the Century” but about frienship, maybe love, circumstances and “what-if” scenarios. If anyone is interested there is a good sum-up of the book in here:

Through the pages of the book a very skillful Thomas Mallon depicts Ruth Paine character with masterly hand. By the way, the picture on the book’s cover was taken by… Allan Grant.

    After reading “Mrs. Paine’s garage” from Thomas Mallon I became conviced that Lee Harvey Oswald was the only person involved in the Pesident’s assassination. In the other hand I’ve always thought there is an interesting possibility that the things weren’t so clear. The girl in the picture is one of the people who makes me think that way. She is, as I guess you all know, Sylvia Odio and her story doesn’t fit comfortably into the map of the known facts. She has always claimed that Lee Harvey Oswald and two more Cubans visited her in Dallas one night in late September 1963 when Lee was allegedly travelling to Mexico city. The date of the visit and the connection between Oswald and the anti-Castro Cubans are a serious drawback to the findings of the Warren Comission. The thing is, she happens to be a very credible witness for, as far as I know, she has never tried to take any profit of her convincing story.

She had studied ballet with Sonia Gaskell before moving to London in 1948 to continue her ballet training with Marie Rambert and perform as a chorus girl in West End musical theatre productions.

    This picture was taken in 1953 during Audrey’s first trip to Hollywood after her perfomance as Princess Anna in Roman Holiday. She was at the Paramount Studios publicity department trying to close a contract with the Company when she came across these two guys and they pal around for a while. In the end she signed a contract with the Paramount for seven movies with twelve months between films that would allow her to face other projects. The shot was taken by Bob Willoughby.

    She is one of the most accomplished portrait photographers of our times. She has an impressive record of astonishing portraits and the uncertain pleasure of being the last person taking pictures of John Lennon the same day of his death.

    Annie Leibovitz went to Lennon’s apartment that afternoon. She wanted to take some pictures of the worldwide rock star for Rolling Stone magazine. The famous photographer wanted a picture of Lennon alone for the cover of the magazine but Lennon insisted that he wanted his wife to appear in the cover too, so this one would be selected. Leibovitz said years later that both of them were supposed to be naked but Ono eventually started to feel unconfortable. The photographer left the Dakota building at 3:30 pm. It was december 8, 1980.
