JACQUELINE ONASSIS, at Downtown Sound, New York City, December 1979 It is unclear if Jacqueline Onassis or Princess Diana were the most photographer women of our time, but I think I'd put my money on Mrs. Onassis, simply because she lived longer. I certainly took more pictures of her than I did of Princess Diana. I've told the story about this picture many times, but the short version is that at the time Jackie, and yes I did call her that, was the editor of the book I was doing about Berenice Abbott. She came to 173 Christopher Street to go over some boxes of pictures I'd brought from Maine. When we took a break she spotted an old Atget book on a table and asked if she could borrow it. I said, "Of course, if you'll let me take a picture of you holding it." She thought that was a fair trade, we went downstairs to the room where my Deardorff was set up under a skylight. I took three pictures, side view, front view and one with her assistant, Ray Roberts. This one is my favorite. She liked it as well.
