above left is a Jewelry item created by world renowned Designer Henry Dunay. It would be rare that
anyone has an opportunity to see this piece. It is part of a private collection. But ... the Moment was
preserved by Alberto Rizzo and Richard Renda. The Brooch is called "The Pharoah's Daughter."
What do you mean "one more shot" ! ! ! Alberto knew as a fact that when the editorial director
Richard Renda pushed it ... the last shot -unplanned- would no doubt be one of the Best. And the
man, the Photographer, Alberto Rizzo never refused to do it.

Shhhh ... don't tell anyone -- this is Alberto Rizzo imitating the "Shot
Nazi" foundly known as Hair & Make-up Artist Robin Narvaez. She
was Alberto's longtime companion and production director. It was
Robin's responsibility to keep us on the time schedule.
Alberto and the TC Crew would start at 8 in the morning. But Richard would always, at every shoot, push Alberto to
take another shot at the end of the day and we can not remember a shoot that did not end before 10:30 at night.
Alberto would always mumble profanities at Richard. A good example of what happened during those end of day
moments is ... "The Pharoah's Daughter." A picture that would not be but is.
"The Child In Me" ... Nadine wearing and spinning a fabulous Zang Toi Animal Print Creation.
