I remember I was working with Bing Crosby at the Palladium. It was the last year of his life, actually, 1977. And I was waiting in the wings to go on, and this man approached me. He came up to me and he said, “May I speak to you for a moment? And I said, “Of course.” And he said, “I have a coin that I’d like to give you, to return to Marlene Dietrich. She gave me this coin at the beginning of the war. I was very young and very afriad. And she put this coin in my hand and said. ‘As long as you have this, you’ll be fine.’ And she closed my hand around it, and I made it home. And this is the coin. Could you give this back to Ms. Dietrich? Please close her hand around it, and tell her as long as she has that, she’ll be fine.”

Day & Night
The photographs in Day & Night look at the face we present to the world and contrasts that with the one we save for only a select few. The work challenges notions of what is considered normal and acceptable.
