Gene Simmons. We were doing a late-night session at my New York studio on East Sixty-First Street. I had an idea about Gene being like a statue, a work of art, and that we should make a photograph at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. He said he’d like to, but he had already let his driver go and could we plan it for another time. I knew that might never happen, so I suggested we take the bus up Madison Avenue to the museum. He agreed. I think we were both surprised that the bus driver, as well as the few people on the bus, had no reaction to him. That’s what I love about New York City!

Lynn Goldsmith’s imagery is in numerous collections: The Smithsonian, The Polaroid Collection, The Kodak Collection, The Museum of Modern Art, The Chicago Museum of Contemporary Photography, and the permanent collection of Museum Folkwang. She is a multi-awarded portrait photographer whose work has appeared on and between the covers of Life, Newsweek, Time, Rollingstone, Sports Illustrated, People, Elle, Interview, The New Yorker, etc. Her subjects have varied from entertainment personalities to sports stars, from film directors to authors, from the extra-ordinary to the ordinary man on the street.
