The Eagles, Los Angeles, 1975

"I did a bunch of sessions with them. The first one I was filming and photographing — I don't know what it was, but they walked out on me. When I rolled up and showed them the images, they went, 'Oh, this is cool,' so they came back to my studio. We ended up doing a bunch of shoots. I didn't dress them, they came as is. "When you work with a group of people, you have to create a personal relationship with every person. When I work with six people, I just have to have six relationships. When I was shooting, the group didn't stand close to each other, or put their arms around each other. So at a certain point, I just said, 'Get tighter.' But I didn't pose anyone. They just fell into that beautiful phalanx of people. "It's about emotional presence — if they're not inspired by the relationship, their eyes look dead. In this photo, they look very much like, 'We're having a conversation. We're having a relationship.'"
