I hated transparency film.

kind of film was in my camera.

a nice girl.
- Helmut Newton

It's that I don't like white paper backgrounds.
A woman does not live in front of white paper.

in a hotel room.

My job as a portrait photographer is to seduce,
amuse and entertain.

I did find a wonderful girl last year,
but the photographs that we did were more about motorcars.

Farewell My Friend
It was beautiful as long as it lasted
The journey of my life.
I have no regrets whatsoever
save the pain I'll leave behind.
Those dear hearts who love and care...
And the strings pulling at the heart and soul...
The strong arms that held me up
When my own strength let me down.
At every turning of my life
I came across good friends,
Friends who stood by me,
Even when the time raced me by.
Farewell, farewell my friends
I smile and bid you goodbye.
No, shed no tears for I need them not
All I need is your smile.
If you feel sad do think of me
for that's what I'll like
when you live in the hearts
of those you love, remember then
you never die.
- Gitanjali Ghei

a well of affection, and not a fountain,
to show them that we love them,
