Manoucher Yektai

Photos Of Yektai By Bruce Davidson

Manoucher produced a pile of contact sheets and images that were taken by Bruce Davidson. I am not sure when or how Manoucher and Bruce met. All I know is that I feel like I have known Bruce and his family for my whole life.

These images are from a session in Manoucher’s studio on the upper West Side of Manhattan.

Here are two pages that caught my eye.

Manoucher Yektai By Bruce Davidson

Picture From Iran Before Yektai Came To America

This is a photo of Manoucher (second from the right) in the Alborz Mountains outside of Teheran in Iran. It was before 1944. He thinks possibly 1942 or 1943.

Jerome Robbins Sitting For A Portrait By Manoucher Yektai

Jerome Robbins sitting for a portrait. I need to find out what year and which studio. I am quite sure that the painting is in Manoucher Yektai’s collection.

Jerome Robbins was an award winning director and choreographer.
