|Mr. Burton dressing for his portrait at his home in Queens, June 2010|
He was not all that shy - it was more that we were getting to know each other. His shirt was from the turn of the century, of delicate woven striped cloth. The blue perfectly matched his icy eyes. He wanted me to photograph him in his blue, white, and yellow kitchen inspired by Claude Monet's famous French kitchen. There he would sit in his matching outfit with Edwardian cravat, like a character from the movie playing in his mind.
