Grey Villet        1927-2000

 

In the spring of 1965,

my husband,

Grey Villet, was given

a Life Magazine assignment

to photograph the Lovings,

an interracial married couple

then embroiled

in legal tangles

after their arrest

for miscegenation

in Virginia.

 

Grey did not

concern himself

with those

entanglements.

 

He chose, as he did

in every essay

we ever worked on

together,

to seek out

the literal heart

of the matter:

a love story.

 

Emotional content

always mattered

most to Grey in his work

and pursuit of images

ďas real as real could get.Ē

 

Itís what gives

his take

on the Loving family

its intimacy

and strength.

 

Grey was a purist

in his approach

to every essay

he shot.

 

Quiet as a cat,

he seemed almost

to disappear

as he worked.

 

Unlike many other

celebrated photographers,

he avoided

posing his subjects,

refused

to manipulate the action

and simply waited patiently

for telling moments to emerge,

in the belief that reality

would supply more truth

than any imposition

of his own ego.
