years. “Andy was always very detached, distant and he loved gossip. He was fascinated by Hollywood and the BBC…the Billionaires Boys Club.” On David LaChapelle: “David is very expressive, a real talent...imaginative… and he is able to be child-like and playful. David’s work is quite full of fun, he is a very clever artist and quite prolific.” On Helmut Newton: “Helmut had a whole new way of seeing women. He made them masculine, assertive and aggressive. He was always full of ideas.” David’s phone rang and our interview was over. The two hours I spent with him steeped in his world of highly potent, elegant imagery had passed too quickly. My scribbled notes and the photos I shot in David’s office are remembrances of a few hours well spent, in the company of a California pioneer - a man who was the first to bring much of the world’s best photography to Los Angeles. Fahey/Klein regularly mounts two-person exhibitions every five weeks. There is always something wonderful to see. Web fabrikmagazine.com
