    ‘I was in LA working, staying at the Chateau [Marmont], when the unfortunate happened. Helmut crashed his car outside the Chateau. Before leaving on an early flight the next morning, I printed one of my favorite images of his and placed it at the spot of the crash. I contacted June [Newton] as I was doing a portfolio of great men for Vogue Paris and wanted to include this Polaroid; June thought it was bad taste and the image was never published.’
