HARRY LANGDON ON PHOTOGRAPHING JOAN RIVERS




 Joan Rivers, 1985
 Photographed by
Harry Langdon
Beverly Hills, CA


"The photo sessions with Joan were Choreographed to a high degree of precision.  From the moment Joan would walk in the door,  every moment had to be utilized to ensure the least amount of time would be spent doing the photos.  Perhaps 5 – 8 minutes were used per wardrobe change.   At least 6 changes.----- Like all genius performers,  she had the ‘performance'  planned in her mind,  I was there to carry out what she had imagined. -  A certain amount of time we had to expect her to entertain us all with some of her hilarious recent material."  
-- Harry Langdon
