    John, I think she looks better with the rags on!

    Never knew about these pictures.

    Vanity, thy name is woman!

    Hi Mick,

    I know what you mean. She allegedly offered to pose nude, but Eve turned her down. She has since said that she refused because it would have been degrading, and it was not in her nature to show her subjects in an unfavorable way !!!!

    Regards, John.

    I like Eve Arnold's work very much. This photo is very powerful. Nice irony that about the "unfavourable way"! . Somehow it's acceptable, though cruel, because of what we know of Joan Crawford...
    I think my favourite photos of hers are the Long Island pics she took in the '50's.

    I like the sense of her total involvement in the music...

    Yeah, you could say she is wrapped up in it ? There seems also to be a hint of frustration there perhaps ?

    Regards, John.
