From Gary Bernstein: “When I was about 20, I dropped out of the University of Florence (Italy) camera in hand hoping to “find” Sophia Loren ;). Of course, every man in the world was hoping to find Sophia Loren ;). I was introduced to the legendary actress and great beauty many years later by acclaimed fashion designer Nolan Miller. I was driving on Sunset when my car phone rang and Nolan said “Gary, there’s a lady here you might want to talk to,” and he put Sophia on the phone who was at his studio for a fitting. A day later we shot our first session together in my Culver City studio. This particular Derivative image was created from an original color photograph I made in the ballroom of the Hotel Des Bergues, Geneva, Switzerland."
