Portrait of myself and my daughter Giulietta taken by Bernard Plossu at the Café Deux Magots around 1973. Bernard and I were working together on his first show in Paris of Western American ghost towns.
In 1973 Bernard set up a meeting for me with Ansel Adams at his home in Carmel. Adams decided he wanted to take my portrait and we went back the next day and he photographed all of us with a new camera. To my great regret, none of the pictures came out. The only trace I have is these photos taken by Bernard of Ansel photographing me.
The afternoon wore on helped along by quantities of white wine. By early evening the sun filled the room with light and Ansel started working. Apparently, the camera, an electric Hasselblad, was a recent gift and he had still not figured it out. Result, blank negatives.
