President Boris Yeltsin, Moscow, 1991 - As Russian President Yeltsin was giving a speech to the parliament, I was told to set up a room directly behind the auditorium. One of his aides said, "He'll never go in there. The only way that you will get a photo is by setting up in the corridor of the doorway that he must use to leave." I stood in his path as he left and asked to take his photograph. He stood still for five frames, then went on his way.
