'Vogue's great lost photographer'. Model Wilhemina said of him, "He was a weird, wild man. He used to throw the editors down the staircase. He should have lived in the sixties. He was witty, bitchy and for the dull fifties shockingly so." He took the ring light used in dentistry and made it into a staple of fashion and portraiture lighting.
