(L) "Francesco Scavullo truly understood light. His images are really beautiful. I think that reflected his own beauty of spirit...as an artist, as a human being...as much as it did that of the subjects he graced with his camera. I miss him." —Barbra Streisand.    (R) "He was such a glamorous person who represented the most glamorous time in New York. Francesco truly appreciated the work that went into creating a glamorous effect. I was very young when I first worked with him, but he treated me with respect and always wanted to collaborate in the image making." –Christy Turlington.


“You could feel the love for his subjects. He celebrated beauty and women, and not just glamour, but purity." —Brooke Shields
