In 1974, photographer Daniel Sorine encountered two mimes in New York City’s Central Park who were more than willing to pose for his camera. It wasn’t until many years later that Daniel realized that one of the mimes was a then-unknown Robin Williams and the other was author Todd Oppenheimer.
“What attracted me to Robin Williams and his fellow mime, Todd Oppenheimer, was an unusual amount of intensity, personality and physical fluidity,” Sorine tells us. “When I approached them with my Pentax Spotmatic they allowed me to invite them into my camera instead of me having to chase after them.” – PetaPixel
