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)
