Nico, The Marble Index Album Cover, CA, 1968

By Guy Webster
About the image
"I first saw Nico in the movie La Dolce Vita. She was this gorgeous blond German beauty when I met her at Monterey. She later came to my studio and we had an immediate connection. It was for her solo album The Marble Index. She didn't have much time for that shoot — maybe two or three hours. First thing I did was darken her hair, and then I set up the lighting. I noticed her amphetamine lips, and I knew I had to get that into the picture. She had been a model. I asked her not to model but just look right at the camera. I did it on a black background with a light behind her head so that I could bring her forward. It was Andy Warhol's favorite picture. He had a copy in his studio."
