Quoted from, "The Eye of Photography"...
"In 2015, the Chinese photographer @ZhongWeixing launched a major project: he began systematically taking portraits of great photographers. The collection of these images constitutes an exceptional panorama, a sort of pantheon, but above all a stirring homage to those who labor with passion in order to make photography a major art of our time,"... and I was HONORED to be included in this masterful work by Zhong. Along with Weixing's book cover is a photo taken by my assistant, Kathy Lener of Zhong & I during the photoshoot. #FacetoFace can be purchased on Amazon. -- #blackandwhite#JeanLucMonterosso#AlainFleischer#ZhengGu#photography#photographers#portraits

Check this out... I captured a very young @BryanCranston & actress, Sandy Bowen, August of '84, Beverly Hills, CA, 34 years ago. Today Cranston turns 62, #HappyBirthday! Best known for his roles in #MalcolmintheMiddle & #BreakingBad, Cranston commemorated the final episode with castmate #AaronPaul@glassofwhiskey, by getting Breaking Bad tattoos on the last day of filming; Cranston's tattoo consists of the show's logo on one of his fingers, and Paul's consists of 'no half measures' on his bicep - (wikipedia). Bowen once married to #Kiss frontman, Paul Stanley is known for her roles in dozens of TV shows including "Six Feet Under" "Everybody Loves Raymond"and "Days of Our Lives".

Gearing up for this Sunday's Academy Awards! Here's a throwback to April of '71 when Jack Nicholson dated Mama and the Papa's, Michelle Phillips. Nicholson was nominated for the "best actor" award for his starring role in "5 Easy Pieces," but George C Scott took home the statue for "Patton."
Managing to stay together for 55+ years, Rolling Stone guitarist, Keith Richards may have placed a wedge between him & the groups lead singer, Mick Jagger. In a recent WSJ article, Richards quipped, that Mick "is a randy old bastard, it's time for the snip—you can't be a father at that age. Those poor kids!" Richards responded to Mick becoming a father at the age of 73, welcoming his eighth child early last year. After the magazine's interview was published online, Richards issued a statement to E! News. "I deeply regret the comments I made about Mick in the WSJ., which were completely out of line," the rocker said. I have of course apologized to him in person."
