"that is what all of this is - all of this: the one song, ever changing, ever reincarnated, that speaks somehow from and to and for that which is ineffable within us and without us...That nameless black-hulled ship of Ulysses, that long black train, that Terraplane, that mystery train, that Rocket '88', that Buick 6 - same journey, same miracle, same end and endlessness."

Portrait of Billie Holiday and Mister, for Down Beat magazine, June 1946.
Photograph by William Gottlieb
Caption from Down Beat: This is the first of a series of musical celebrities, pictured in the intimacy of their own dressing rooms by the camera of Bill Gottlieb, Down Beat staffer. Billie Holiday is his first subject, with the looking glass reflecting such items as pancake makeup, the fresh pineapple for the singer’s throat and her pet Boxer.
