He was a very talented photographer, his photos really caught the essence of the subject, his talent will be missed. May he Rest In Peace.

May he rest in peace. Looks like he had great taste in pipes too. A Danish freehand by the looks of it. Perhaps a Preben Holm.

Saw that in the paper. A gifted artist. And what a great advertisement for tobacco pipes, even now.

I was looking through his photographs from different websites. I found this one of Donald Trump taken in 1980.
