Editta Sherman was 98 when I photographed her for my book. She was a smart and kind woman. Editta brought in her 1952 photo of Bela Lugosi that she made of him in her legendary Carnegie Hall studio. On a later trip to New York, I was able to visit Editta at Carnegie Hall during on one of her final days occupying the space.
Here is a photo of the two of us with Editta's portrait of Andy Warhol. I was fortunate enough to aquire an original print of this Warhol image from Editta, an image that is cherished and hangs in my studio.
Editta passed away this month at the age of 101, she will be missed.
