A Voyeur Backstage
“If a photographer says he is not a voyeur, he is an idiot,” Helmut Newton, world-renowned glamour photographer.
I might have been one of the very few photographers in the world who produced non-fiction photographs of "charme."
Coming from a fine arts background, it always seemed that my work should show what's out there. Or behind there. But not staged there.
Never got into shooting studio work. Never really enjoyed taking pictures of the dresses which was the whole point of hiring a photographer to cover fashion shows.
I got off on the experience of being at the shows and on more than one occasion, tried to slide documentary type pictures past the editor.
