'The authenticity and emotional depth of their love was exactly what I was looking for in my images. Forty years later, these shots – which were simply a way for me to build my New York portfolio – have been in great demand for book covers and television & magazine stories around the world.' Norman Seeff
Their chemistry was immediate and powerful, and the couple agreed to an intimate photography session. Seeff captured them in April 1969 soon after Patti had moved into room 207 of the Chelsea Hotel. This was almost a decade prior to Patti's debut album Horses and before Robert embraced the Polaroid camera, and established himself as a photographer.
Norman Seeff a body of content explores the roots of creativity, innovation and optimal performance and has identified schematics describing the archetypes of the creative process that function across all creative disciplines. The fundamental tenet of his work is that all creation is sourced in the inner resources of consciousness and that everyone has access to the same innate resources.
