Today we received, via our web hosting friend who has hosted our site for many years
an email from Paul Herron, who has let us know that a photo we have up on the site
was done by Jill Krementz and has asked that we put the appropriate copyright words under the photo. Until our web maintence master for our site can post the appropriate correction, we wish to note it on this blog. Below is the email and the gracious permission that Ms. Krementz has granted the site despite our inappropriate use of her photo.

Dear Moira (
>First of all I want to wish you a happy new year.

>I am writing on the behalf of New York photographer Jill Krementz that one of the photographs you have of Rupert Pole and Anais Nin on your tribute page to Rupert, specifically, the closeup on the right, which has been attached to this e-mail, was taken by her and she wishes to be credited in the following manner: "Photo by Jill Krementz, (c) 2006. All rights reserved."
>Apparently Rupert made copies of said photograph and sent it to dear friends without realizing he was breaking the contract between photographer and subject (in other words, he should have put the photo credit on the back of the photo as was required)...

>Thank you,
>Paul Herron
>Member, the Anais Nin Trust Committee
