Bert was an extraordinary art director who when made vp, transformed his office into
an all bright white space, floors, walls, ceiling. When I asked him why this choice, he
smiled as he said, “now there are no other distractions, all we see, we feel is us.”
He took the most ethereal photos of me when he crouched OUTSIDE HIS OFFICE
WINDOW IN RAIN so he could shoot through the wet glass to capture me trying to be
pensive while I was shuttering in fear that he might fall.
