Courtney Love and Todd Almond

Jesse Dittmar experience with meeting these two…

Courtney Love and Todd Almond for Kansas City Choir Boy in New York City. Courtney Love is one of those “pinch yourself” subjects. I never expected to have an opportunity to photograph her. Though, this is really the reason why I’m a photographer: icons like Courtney. Todd arrived first, a lovely and very tall man. They got along perfectly. Courtney spoke about all the photographers she’s worked with from Avedon to Leibovitz. After the portraits I shot some acoustic rehearsal, and a few weeks later I made it to the opening show. The progression: meeting the lead actors to rehearsal to performance was a unique treat. The show was surprising and astounding. Courtney and Todd killed it. – JD
