„I like photographing the people I love, the people I admire, the famous, and especially the infamous.“
— Helmut Newton German-Australian photographer 1920 - 2004
Context: I like photographing the people I love, the people I admire, the famous, and especially the infamous. My last infamous subject was the extreme right wing French politician Jean-Marie Le Pen. Even when I am not in sympathy with the person, I have to be in love with him or her while I'm doing their portrait. Le Pen adored me (at least until his photo ran alongside Hitler's in Le Monde), and we got on extremely well. As quoted in Photo (2005) by Graphis Inc. http://books.google.com/books?id=m9RTAAAAMAAJ&q=%22Le+Pen+adored
