Richmond “had the air of a juvenile skateboarder; he was an older man. He referred to himself as the Keith Richards of photography at one point. And in a sense, that’s exactly what he was,” Peretz remarked on Facebook.

“He taught me not only so much about photography but also about character and story. He never wanted the photography to upstage the character, even if it undermined his ability to grab the limelight and promote himself.”
