On Photographing Harvey Keitel

Harvey Keitel

When he arrived he told me that he doesn’t like to look at the camera when he’s photographed.

I said,

“That’s funny because I photographed Mike Leigh a while ago and he refused to do anything other than look directly at the camera. He said to have your photograph taken in any other way was ‘total bullshit.'”

Keitel guffawed,

“Hey! I tell you what. Let’s send a print of this to Mike and I’ll sign it ‘Hey Mike, to do anything other than look AWAY from the camera is the real bullshit!'”
