Adam Buxton used to do a great Mick Rock impression on him and Joe Cornish's old XFM show.

 

"I remember back in the 60s.... the Rolling Stones. Their lead singer was Mick Jagger. Yeah...."

Well, let's share it.

 

And I love the Warszawa one as well, not that there's any Rock in it.

David Bailey has been diagnosed with vascular dementia:

He's had it for three years and seems to have adjusted to it just fine. He says, he can go see a movie,then forget about it, and watch it again, after two years.

I totally missed that at the time. I wonder if he will be on the list in a few years once it has progressed. He is famous enough.

As requested by @drol...

Here are the living subjects of Carl Van Vechten (1880–1964), photographed between 1932 and 1964:
 

Adele Addison (wiki, b. 1925) American lyric soprano
Don Bachardy (wiki, b. 1934) American portrait artist, partner of Christopher Isherwood
Harry Belafonte (wiki, b. 1927) American singer-songwriter
Joyce Bryant (wiki, b. 1927) American singer and actress
Frederick Buechner (wiki, b. 1926) American novelist and poet
Roy Eaton (wiki, b. 1930) American painter
Richard T. Gibson (b. 1931) American journalist and activist. No Wiki page, interviewed several years ago, appears to live in the UK now.
Reri Grist (wiki, b. 1932) American coloratura soprano
Afrika Hayes (b. 1933) American soprano and music educator, daughter of tenor and composer Roland Hayes. No Wiki page.
Leo Holder (b. 1958) American graphic artist, son of Carmen de Lavallade (below) and Geoffrey Holder. No Wiki page, still active though.
John Terry Hornblow (b. 1931) American son of producer Arthur Hornblow Jr. No Wiki page, living according to the U.S. residency records.
Marilyn Horne (wiki, b. 1934) American mezzo-soprano opera singer
Raymond Jackson (b. 1933) American concert pianist. No Wiki page, personal website here.
Margie Lou King Barab (b. 1932) American singer and actress. No Wiki page, living according to the U.S. residency records.
George Lamming (wiki, b. 1927) Barbadian novelist, essayist and poet
Philip Langner (b. 1926) American producer, son of Lawrence Langner. No Wiki page, wife's obit from a few years ago says he's alive.
Carmen de Lavallade (wiki, b. 1931) American dancer and choreographer, widow of the great Geoffrey Holder.
Robert Morse (wiki, b. 1931) American actor and singer
Peter Perenyi (b. 1940) American son of Eleanor Perenyi. No Wiki page because not notable in his own right, gave an interview last year.
Leontyne Price (wiki, b. 1927) American soprano
George Shirley (wiki, b. 1934) American operatic tenor

 

I went through his entire collection here to get this info. There may be one or two more living subjects, but some are just too obscure to track down a fate for.

When I get time, I'll also look at the earlier portraits of Allan Warren, which consist of mainly British subjects – royalty, aristocracy, actors and writers etc.

Death by indifference. René Robert, a renowned photographer, died of extreme hypothermia after suffering a fall in Paris; he lay unattended for 9 hours on a busy street, people walking around him, before someone called the emergency services.

Heard of it, thought it was already reported here some times ago, it really moved the opinion out there in France ! The only one to care and call the emergency services was a homeless guy !

Photojournalist Steve Schapiro, who died last week, was instrumental in capturing the Civil Rights movement.  Schapiro died of pancreatic cancer in Chicago on Jan. 15, the same date as Martin Luther King’s birthday. He was 87.

Good obituary, worth the read.

Letizia Battaglia, photographer who captured 20th century Sicily and - most importantly - the impact the Mafia had on it, dead at 87. Was still exhibiting last month so it must have been something pretty sudden. The documentary about her, Shooting the Mafia, is a good watch if you have a few hours:

Morse is the first faller from the list of surviving Van Vechten subjects.

He was 26/27 when he was photographed below in 1958.

Would obit no problem. 30 years ago ITV had a 4 part miniseries "Frankie's House" based on his book Page After Page where it covers his time in Vietnam with Sean Flynn (son of Errol). It was on youtube worth a watch if you have a few hours to kill.
