Photographer William Claxton dies - Times Online

Photographer William Claxton dies - Times Online: "He was a luminary behind the camera who captured the legendary in front of it, but at the age of 80, photographer William Claxton has died.
Claxton succumbed to complications stemming from congestive heart failure on Saturday at Los Angeles' Cedars Sinai Medical Center, leaving behind a raft of iconic images of music stars.
While best known for his portraits of jazz artists such as Chet Baker, Claxton snapped a who’s who of the entertainment world, among them Steve McQueen, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Tom Jones and Frank Sinatra."
