“Dolly Parton makes everyone feel right at home with a down-home welcome when she meets you. She was getting ready for me to photograph her. I walked over to ask when she would be ready and saw her standing near a window, putting on the finishing touches of her make-up. I said, “Dolly, don’t move, just keep doing what you are doing,” and she obliged. It was a completely natural picture, no lights were set up, yet it was the one I liked best from that day.” – Harry Benson
