Photographer. He was born in Manhattan, New York City, New York, he worked mainly for society publications, taking pictures of the rich and famous both before and after serving as a photographer for the United States military magazine "Yank" during World War II. His work has been included in the publications "Town and Country", "Holiday", "Venture" and "LIFE". His subject matter covered American and European society as well as nobility and both minor and major stars of the day. His most celebrated image was shot on New Year's Eve of 1957 in the Crown Room at Romanoff's restaurant in Hollywood. Called "The Kings of Hollywood," it showed actors Clark Gable, Van Heflin, Gary Cooper and Jimmy Stewart — what Smithsonian magazine called "a Mount Rushmore of stardom" and the novelist Louis Auchincloss "the very image of American he-men." In 1974 he published "A Wonderful Time: An Intimate Portrait of the Good Life."A sequel, "Once Upon a Time," in part a reprise of the first book, was published in 2003. In 2005 a third book, "A Place in the Sun," came out. He died in Montrose, New York of a heart attack.
