We chatted with Albert Maysles about the most extraordinary women he has worked with and this is what he said…”I never photographed her but spent some time alone with Eleanor Roosevelt who was a strong wonderful woman, the most beautiful and a bombshell would be Sophia Loren for me, never photographed Marilyn Monroe but my good friend Milton Greene did (Milton’s Marilyn).  I asked what was the most amazing thing he had ever done he said ”Gimme Shelter” and that recently he has been working on ”Get Your Ya Ya’s Out!”
