Love At The ArchFriday, December 29, 2006
For close to 10 years I took photographs of women in the "best" room of the downtown Marble Arch Hotel. The place was never noted for Champagne breakfasts, valet parking and other four-star hotel amenities. But the fact was that I could get a room there whenever I wanted to from my friend Tony Ricci. And I also knew that when I was at the Marble Arch nobody could find me unless I told Tony I wanted to be found. In the first few days of January 1991 I showed up with Claire Love to take some photos. Guy gave me the key to the room and we went up. I shot my pictures untethered to any flash. I rarely did this or do this since taking pictures with a small camera with no lights seems to be too easy. Here are a few of Claire who was on her way to get married in Paris.
I never saw her again.
