My Elizabeth documents Taylor’s life from age 44 to the end of her life. The photos in My Elizabeth, many which have never been published, offer a glimpse into Taylor’s private life, and explores who she really was outside of the Hollywood limelight.

After working as a photographer for Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine, he moved to Los Angeles as Elizabeth Taylor’s personal photographer in 1978.
