  • Andrew Wyeth had just finished his superb tempera, "Battleground," and asked me to photograph it in his studio. I took an 8 x 10 view camera, lights, and all the necessary paraphernalia and made the reproduction images.

    But after the lights were off and I was getting ready to leave, Andy came by the studio with his dog, Nell, and I asked if I could make a portrait or two.

    After a lifetime of getting people to pose for him, Andy was a great sitter….as unselfconscious as can be. And Nell stood, almost asleep on her feet, until the large shutter clicked, making her move her head just a bit.

    A very private and special moment, with two great friends.

    Utter simplicity, yet a lot of detail which still fascinates me. My childhood home was just to the right of the Mill complex in the painting.

    Everything about this one is home to me.
