Excerpt from The Photographer, His Wife, Her Lover

Excerpt from The Photographer, His Wife, Her Lover (.wmv video 03:02). "...Fifteen years ago Paul Yule created a documentary film about one of Americas greatest stills photographer - Winston Link. Link, 76 at the time, earned his reputation from photographs of train engines taken in the Fifties. In 1983 Link married Conchita who was twenty years younger than him. Conchita became his business manager making his reputation and the value of his photographs soar while turning Link into a celebrity. Soon after the completion of that film a terrible scandal broke out in the art world. It transpired that Conchita had been cheating on Link with another man, terrorized and imprisoned him in their home, to finally steal his assets and wealth. Following the widely reported divorce, Conchita found herself locked up behind bars. Link died in 2001 and Yule decided to reconstruct the Link affair by making a new film."
