THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Linda Solomon sits at her desk surrounded by portraits she
has photographed.

along with an interview
about her work.
Solomon shrugs most of
that away as only another
exciting chapter from the
past. One of her goals is to
arrange an interview with
former President Richard Ni-
xon.
Don't discount that as im-
possible.
With sensitivity and com-
passion for her subjects, she's
been able to snag interviews
with celebrities who normally
avoid the press, creating a
touch of envy in the heart of
more than one seasoned jour-
nalist.
Detroit Mayor Coleman
Young recently opened the
doors to the Manoogian Man-
sion and allowed Solomon to
photograph several rooms
there, a rare, if not one-time
occurrence for Young.
Earlier this year, she asked
for and got permission to
interview Motown's Barry
Gordy and later managed to
get a personal interview with
press-shy Magic Johnson.
"My approach to a celebrity
is first to introduce myself.
And, then I tell them which
newspaper I'm from. I'm very
professional and I always ask
permission before snapping a
photograph.
"Everything I do is done in
a very formal manner. Some-
times you never know the
kind of odd requests that
many celebrities will make.
Julio Iglesias, for example,
will only allow photographers
to photograph him from the
right side of his face. It's al-
ways unusual because you're
dealing with people who are
very concerned with the way
they look. So, they have kind
of unusual demands at
times."
One of Solomon's greatest
coups took place in New York
a few years back when she
snapped one of the first pic-
tures of Mary Cunningham
and William Agee of Bendix

fame together. When rumors
of that couple's romance hit
the front page of newspapers
around the country, Solomon,
was able to name her price
for that timely photograph.
"It was almost like hitting
a jackpot, really. It can be
very, very lucrative . when
something like that hap-
pens," said Solomon.
Her photo of Agee and
Cunningham appeared in
Time and in Newsweek's pic-
torial review of 1980.
In 1979, Solomon worked
on the movie, Tiger Town,
with Roy Scheider. Some of
the still photographs she shot
also were published in Time
and Sports Illustrated maga-
zines. -
After all is said and done,
Solomon's favorite subject,
her hero and a woman she
hopes very much to emulate
is Barbara Walters. In 1984,
Walters granted Solomon an
interview and Solomon flew
to New York. "Up until that
time she had only agreed to
interviews for cover stories.
"I will never forget the per-
sonal details of that day, it
was a real thrill to meet and
interview this woman whom
I've always admired," said
Solomon.
"She has a level of confi-
dence, but she was extremely
honest. She could be so ap-_
proachable, so vulnerable."
Last Christmas, Solomon
received a beautiful gift-
wrapped box of gourmet food
from Walters as well as an
autographed copy of Walters'
book entitled How to Talk To.
On an inside page, Walters
had inscribed: "To Linda who
doesn't need the advice in
this book."
Since then, Solomon and _<
Walters have corresponded
several .times. "I've never
opened that box of gourmet
food though because I want to <
keep it forever as a remem-
brance from Barbara Wal-
ters," said Solomon.
