Newton: I point my camera and don’t think much about design. And I live in Monte Carlo. That’s not an aesthetic place although I am very happy there. The light is gorgeous, there is a lot of sun and no taxes. I do love Paris, though. I lived there for 27 years, paid an awful lot of taxes, then I got to a certain age and I didn’t want to hack away at advertising and end up giving 70 percent to the government. So I changed. Now we live by the sea. I love the sea.
