Lawrence Schiller is a prolific photojournalist, having captured photos of some of the most renowned American celebrities. His iconic images of Robert F. Kennedy, Richard Nixon, Bette Davis, Barbra Streisand, Marilyn Monroe, Muhammad Ali, and Madame Nhu among others are tributes to his doggedness, ingenuity, and charm as well as to his technical proficiency. In WAITING IN THE WINGS, we see a young Carrie Fisher ardently watching her mother Debbie Reynolds perform onstage. The young girl’s fascination and admiration radiate from her body language– the poised way in which she seems enthralled by her mother’s every move. This photo lends itself to Humanity well for its depiction of familial love and devotion, as well as the role that celebrities play within society: how our fondness and adoration of others can extend to those we have never even met personally.
