Smiling 73-year-old Veruschka could illuminate the whole of Moscow. The reason for happiness - a huge exhibition of her work and the same number of those who see them. Faith itself is a delight considering portraits, commenting that it comes easily to portray anything: Afghan shepherd, the stone, the girl with the free way of life. Its portfolio of hundreds of images.
To be the standard of the time, oddly enough, it interfered with high growth and long legs. And well it suited Veruschka: to be "right" format to show beautiful clothes - not about her. Salvador Dali was first used her body as a piece of art, turning it into a sculpture of shaving cream. World Faith overturned. After 11 covers for Vogue, she easily traded fashion for something, it felt more real. Now she had to work with Michelangelo, Andy Warhol and Richard Avedon.
Veruschka portraits can be seen on display until May 5 in the Biennale "Fashion and Style in Photography".
