With Daughter Giulietta by Bernard Plossu, 1973
These photos of Ansel Adams taking my portrait were taken by Bernard Plossu in 1973. Bernard introduced me to Adams during a trip to Carmel and he decided to take our portraits. I had gone there to convince him to come to the Photo Festival in Arles, which he did, the first time ever outside of North America.
After spending an afternoon drinking white wine, the sun came in his front window filling the space with a strong golden light and, at that moment, he decided to start and photographed all four of us.
The sad part of the story is that it was a new camera that he didn’t know well and nothing came out. Bernard’s pictures are the only trace I have of that impressive event.
