Another amazing Town and Country assignment, i was asked to go shoot the Astor estate in Rhinebeck. One of the offspring of the fallen family had written a memoir. When we arrived, it turned out the daughter who had written the book was a majorly orthodox Jew, who had a very grumpy relationship with her parents, who lived on the estate. The scene was a treasure trove of stories and images. Her father had fallen for her mother in Europe and brought back this amazing woman, a Polish artist, to be his wife. She was not acceptable to the Astors, i guess. Anyway, there were very few heated rooms in the house and in one library, i found a dude recording an album. I could have spent weeks there.
