There’s a quick simple story behind this image that I rather like. 

I made this image during a trip to the Marciano to see Yayoi Kusama’s ”with all my love for the tulips, I pray forever.”   We were just about to leave the exhibit after having shot a million and a half photographs when Anna Maria and I both turned to each other at the same time, from across the installation and without having planned it, attempting to make a candid image of the other ‘experiencing fine art.’  

I don’t think I’ve ever seen the image she made of me,  but here is the one I made of her.  All of that lovely hair framed with a simple white t-shirt and that long skirt and accessorized with a leather tote and safety booties on her sneakers, flanked left and right with nothing but polka dots.    

That’s my girl, my love and my muse.
