Famous people I met



The lives of the rich and famous

I am not a press photographer, so I am not usually hanging around well-known people. These are people whom I admire for various reasons or ran into in the line of my work when I had my camera with me. I include them in case some visitors to my home pages feel more tempted to look at the lives of the rich and famous than of the poor and forgotten.
