When the movie Salomé, starring Rita Hayworth and Stuart Granger, came out in 1953, it must have seemed like hot stuff in that cold war, McCarthy-istic, Eisenhower-bland era. Especially the Technicolor Dance of the Seven Veils that Rita Hayworth performs, getting Charles Laughton's attention and causing The Baptist to lose his head.

People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
