<< Back to menu

The television talk show host Oprah Winfrey, 1986. “This was right when she was starting. It was for the American Airlines magazine. They always hired me because I’m really good at photographing people who are new at being celebrities and at making noncelebrities look like celebrities. What’s really good about Oprah—and why she’s so successful—is she knows exactly what she wants. She knows the way she wants to be seen. She knew what she wanted to wear. She knew how she wanted to be placed in the photograph. When I was photographing her, the art director told me that she was going to be the next Johnny Carson.”
