Shot in a studio in Los Angeles rented by Tom Millea for the day. Tom's mark on the world came as a result of his work with platinum instead of silver to produce very unique B&W photographs. His work stills hangs in several museums around the world. He printed a handful of platinum photos with Veronika after his photoshoot with her. When I went and visited Tom at his house in California a few years ago he had told me that he decided to work with Veronika because he felt that:
"she would make an interesting subject to photograph".
He certainly had a very artistic eye for capturing the true beauty of his subjects through the use of B&W, unique lighting and poses. I did have a chance to view the entire set of approx. 1500 photos of Veronika he shot that day and all I can say was that they were breathtaking. He only ever released a handful of photographs from that photosession with Veronika.
During my meeting with him I did purchase one of those wonderful platinum prints and many of the unreleased photos from that set for my private collection.
Here are a few preview images of 3 of platinum prints which Tom sold:
