Most famously, Platon photographed Bill Clinton in a pose that some felt was too revealing. This was his first Esquire cover, and Platon initially followed the brief he'd been given, making staid headshots. "I spent seven and a half minutes giving the Esquire editors what they wanted," he recalls. "Then, in the last 30 seconds, I told myself, 'Here is where you become Platon.' I put on the wide-angle lens and shouted, 'Mr. President! Can you show me the love?' One of Clinton's people said, 'No way show the love.' Clinton replied, 'Shut up. Shut up. I know what he means.' He put his hands on his knees and gave me the Clinton magic." The image is one of Esquire's iconic covers, but Platon thinks most people miss the image's point. "Everybody saw that photo as sex. I see it as charisma."
