Went to see The B-Side a couple of weeks ago, a documentary by Errol Morris about Elsa Dorfman’s photography (mostly) with the 20 x 24″ Polaroid camera, shown here with friend Woyman.
Went to see the Irving Penn exhibit at the Met last week. Among his best known work are portraits taken using this rug as a backdrop (or fore-drop). After photographing another couple being photographed in front of it, it was my turn. Naturally I photographed the photographer.
This friendly guy asked me to take his picture, jumped into this fierce pose, and then wished me God’s blessing.
