We have been extraordinarily lucky to have had some of the best assistants one could ever find. I was incredibly lucky to have my wife, Beverly – an art history graduate, help me and she still continues to. The assistants that I have had are now family and I want to thank them each by name because without them, I may not have the photographs I have today. In chronological order may I say thank you to Chris Lawson, Wayne Parent, Kerri Wylie, Kathryn Gaitens, Peter Piezora, Scott Young, Ed Kowal and Abe Roberto. And yes, this is yet another test portrait of my L.A. assistants standing in before the subject comes on set. Thanks, I don’t know what I would have done without you all.
