The advantage of ‘photographing for myself’ was that my own range of interests was a little wider than what the magazine editors believed to be the range of their readers. My following project was to illustrate Goethe’s Journey to Sicily, the next was about feminine beauty in the history of painting, the fourth about the city of New York, but also (and mainly) about colour photography. My fifth project wasn’t done with a camera, but consisted in a series of interviews with other photographers. The sixth was about Degas' sculptures. Beside these undertakings, I continued to work for magazines, but in a more relaxed (though possibly less ambitious) way.
