I am not surprised by the bizarre requests made by the celebrities that Henry Hargreaves chose to photograph. Before this topic was posted as a discussion topic I was not even aware that photography such as this was present, it is definitely fascinating to look at and read about. Hargreaves job as a photographer for such strange requests seems to be entertaining. Everyday is a new experience which keeps the job appealing. For example the photo of Sinatra’s request specifying such an odd number of 24 chilled shrimp. The strangest one was the one of cornstarch, the requests are so random but yet so real. These unusual requests can be somewhat of a new found routine in the beginning of each celebrities career that they carried on with them for many years probably symbolizing “luck” or “ease” for a performance or for personal preference.
