If the chemistry is right between star and photographer and the geometry of the pictures pleases the star, often the two people end up with a long-term professional friendship during which they continue to work together and to produce highly personal images.
A good friend is a connection to life - a tie to the past, a road to the future, the key to sanity in a totally insane world.
Pictures can be pretty deceptive.
With all due disrespect...
