He's So Violet Bert Stern by Christine Whitney originally published in Violet Grey. 

An intimate look into the private life and mind of the formidable photographer.
Bert Stern’s success began with a martini. As the story goes, in 1955, the 24-year-old photographer was commissioned to shoot a vodka campaign for Smirnoff. The resulting image, a seductive shot of a martini glass juxtaposed with an Egyptian pyramid, launched a creative revolution in advertising as well as Stern’s career, which spanned more than 50 years.
