In the mid-60s, Julian Wasser moved to Los Angeles as a contract photographer for Time, Life and Fortune magazines. In 1968, Time assigned him to go to the home of Joan Didion after the release of her book Slouching Towards Bethlehem.
He shot Joan Didion at her rented house on Franklin Ave. in Hollywood.
They started the shoot inside the house, and then moved outside where Wasser posed Didion with her recently acquired yellow Corvette Stingray.
These images became the most famous portraits of the writer.
Didion by Wasser is the current exhibition at Danziger gallery in New York.
an exhibition of selected published images and outtakes and never seen contact sheets.
