thank you william

William Claxton (October 12, 1927 – October 11, 2008) was one of the best photographers. married to a whimsical looking top fashion model, they must have introduced one another to very different worlds. i bet it was a joy. claxton's lifelong spouse was peggy moffitt, one of the great faces of the sixties. his photos of her are legendary. so are his photos of chet baker. now, it turns out there is an entire book on his pictures of steve mcqueen. i'm in.

photos: claxton and mcqueen/peggy moffitt/dylan
