Jim Carrey "Dumb and Dumber To" Star

"Jim Carrey Bent Backward, Hollywood, California" © Eugene Pinkowski      This is the first publication of this image of Jim Carrey when I shot him for Interview Magazine. He is amazing in front of a camera because he never repeats a move, and he works non-stop coming up with new ideas. The amount of negative space filling two thirds of this image enhances his pose. I was pleasantly exhausted at the end of this shoot. Film:Plus-X Pro Pan,135, Strobe lit, 100mm lens on a minolta body

"Western Union Delivery Messenger, Circa 1929" ©Eugene Pinkowski          Today, I want to offer a sincere "Thank-you" to all of you who appreciate my photographs. I feel very honored by your numerous endorsements on LinkedIn, "likes" and "shares" on Facebook,re-pins on Pinterest, all of your tweets and all of your personal messages.  Throughout this past year I have been so consumed in the recovery of my archive, addressing issues created by persons who seem to be lacking in ethics, I apologize for not being able to thank each of you individually. However, I have seen each and every post, and appreciate and remember each and every one of them. E.P.

DIVINE DESIGN:Thank-you,Tom Ford

"Fabrice Fell to Earth,and Landed in Los Angeles as an Angel: 'Divine Design' " © Eugene Pinkowski   I cannot recall if I shot this for "Divine Design" in 1993,or 1994? The true point of posting this image is to say "Thank-you" to Tom Ford for being the Chair of the most recent "Divine Design". This charity had almost fallen by the wayside, becoming a few days of discount shopping for last season's fashions. then, Mr. Ford, with his usual style and polish, stepped up, and put "Divine Design" back on the map.

Jennifer Nicholson: Hollywood Glamour

"Jennifer Nicholson(With Jay Jarvis: Hollywood Glamour-INTERVIEW Magazine(And Vanity Fair, and, and..." ©Eugene Pinkowski                   I kept think of the old Revlon "Cherries in the Snow" lipstick, the quintessential glamour red lipstick,then based this entire shoot of Jen N. on that color. I wanted it a modern image of Jennifer.Something that spoke to her lineage,yet was totally about Jennifer. I believe we shot this at Tommy Lasorda,Jr's townhouse. As I have written many times, Jennifer Nicholson is my Muse. she can inspire, and transform herself before my camera into whatever personality she is asked to E.P.

Luther Vandross Fights Back

"Luther Vandross Fights Back:INTERVIEW Magazine" © Eugene Pinkowski         When I did this shoot for INTERVIEW Magazine, Luther Vandross had just recovered from a car accident he had been involved in. Unfortunately, there was some puported scandal associated with this accident,and Luther was being wrongly accused. I chose an art gallery for this shoot,because of this installation. Luther,being the gentle soul that he was, put on his boxing glove,and let the world know he was fighting back. Of course,he was found innocent,and rightly so. Luther Vandross was an extremely talented  and generous man. So many artists today would have remained unknown if not for Luther Vandross and his

"Jennifer Nicholson on Her StairMaster"

"Jennifer Nicholson on Her StairMaster,Wwwww.eugenepinkowski.comearing Green Velvet" © Eugene Pinkowski      Dedicated to Jen N., because she "get's it", and to Gregory McCoy, because he will, as well. I always think of the film version of "Suddenly Last Summer" when I look at this photo. That film was shot entirely in black and white, yet the production spent a fortune to make the interior of Violet Venable's estate the perfect shades of green. Jennifer is wearing a rich green velvet evening dress in this photograph. And, although this image is black and white, one can feel that green of her dress. E.P.www.eugene

"Luther Vandross With Lamp"

"Luther Vandross With Lamp"© Eugene Pinkowski               For Dave Koz, Luther's good friend, and Super Model Paul Palmero, who actually acted as my photo assistant for this shoot(And was excellent). I was shooting Luther for INTERVIEW and his P.R. The nicest, most gentle, talented man, When he walked in to my studio he asked :"Where's the photographer.Only models are here.Am I in the right studio?" 

My Dear Old Friend, Rodney Bingenheimer

"Rodney Bingenheimer With Tab,West Hollywood, California-1982"       My good friend of so many years. This image had almost been destroyed beyond restoration during that "incident" last Oct-Dec. Now, Rodney's portrait is back in glorious full color. I remember I was shooting in a studio on Santa Monica Blvd., across from The Formosa, and two doors down from Rodney's Nightclub. Rodney popped by,then left, and came back with his iridescent blue liner on, and very shyly asked me "If you have time, will you take one shot of me?" I shot three rolls;two color,one B+W(From which I was able to capture a stunningly stark portrait of Rodney, unlike anything taken of him. a very private side,showing him as the determined discoverer of some of the greatest rock legends of all time)
