HUFFINGTON POST INTERVIEW WITH HARRY LANGDON, BY BILLI GORDON
Excerpt from the original interview. To read it in it's entirety, please click here.

"Photographing a person is a very intimate experience," said Langdon, who, despite being 79 years old and white, is sought out by rappers like Sean Puffy Combs and bad girls Missy Elliot and Eve. "I believe that there is an energy in a photo session, and if it's a positive energy, amazing things can happen. If you can look at a person lovingly and honestly and gain their trust, the circumstances are irrelevant. The best picture for me is one in which the person lets you see a bit of his or her spirit. It gives the picture a different edge."-- Harry Langdon
