RIP The Contact Sheet: Legendary Stars In Mutiples


RIP. The contact sheet is dead. I spent a LOT of time in my life looking at these. As a former Art Director, I got to look at them, good ones, more than most people, I guess – from Helmut Newton, Bruce Weber, Duane Michaels, Irving Penn.

Bruce Lee is timely as his life has inspired a new Broadway show. I think Queen Elizabeth and The Obamas might have been a nice addition too – just to round out the royals. Cue Lorde ... See the Rest
