The story
behind that picture
"Therese in New York"

By Thorsten von Overgaard

This iconic photo is taken outside the LIFE Hotel in New York that used to house the LIFE Magazine

We decided for a simple shoot, we would "wing it" with whatever light we found.

We bought a wide hat for Therese, and off we went to the streets of New York.

As we walked into the LIFE Hotel, I liked the metal fence and saw that I could shoot up from the basement with the sun behind.

 

 

 

 

It's a very fast photo, it took about two minutes and a few photos, then we headed inside.

You could say it was made in a New York Minute.

It's made with the Leica 50mm Summilux-M ASPH f/1.4 lens wide open, a lens that can handle the strong backlight. The sun is straight behind Therese's back.

 

We went inside the LIFE Hotel and made a few photos. The hotel wasn't on the agenda, but I've stayed there a few times, and when I saw a LIFE magazine for sale by a street vendor, I thought, "Let's get that and go make a LIFE Magazine photo in the LIFE Hotel."

Nice photos too, but the one we made outside is the one you can get here.

My Largest Prints - The 72" Aluboard Print is an Art Statement

My largest prints are usually five to six feet tall (72 inches/180cm); "stand-alone prints" made on glossy photo paper (c-print) that is laminated on 3mm aluboard aluminum plates (also known as “The Rolls Royce of photo printing”). The aluboard has mountings and distance bricks on the back, so they are ready to hang with just two screws on the wall. It's a format that doesn't require a frame, and it just floats half an inch or so from the wall. I like this type of photo because it's impressive, it's a statement, and the photo dominates and sets the tone for the room, hallway or space it hangs in.

         
         

Exhibition prints


The Salzburg Collection is a series of 68 prints from the Leica Galerie Salzburg exhibition.

The Raffles Collection Singapore
Raffles-Collection Singapore is a series of large 72" prints from the exhibition "I Am Here" .

 


My smallest size print here, shown the way I usually have prints framed.

My smallest prints are 4 x 6 inches

Sometimes I just want to have a photo because I like it. I am not trying to fill a space on a wall, and I am not running a gallery or a museum. In fact, I am not even a collector. I am just gathering things I like; which is original art that is personalized by the artist (usually signed and/or given to me as a gift). In my home I have prints of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Stanley Cubrick, Peter Turnley, Jan Grarup, Paul Wolff, Helmut Newton and many others. Many of them are relatively small prints that can fit on a relatively small wall section, as an integrated part of my home. I made this "junior collector size" of 4.25 x 5.5 inches available because it gives many people the possibility to have one or more of my photos at a very reasonable price, and it happens to be a size I like myself. They can even stand on a desktop, and I think they are awesome.
