The photographer first visited New York with the intention of staying a few months, but wound up staying 35 years. “When I worked for Seventeen, they had a private jet,” he recalls to Cathy Horyn. “When I was working in France, we had a little car, all freezing, in winter. Suddenly, I go to America and we have a private jet, and I think, That’s it! Amazing, no?”
