Cambridge, MA. April, 1980

What was I thinking? Actually I know exactly what I was thinking. I was trying to emulate photographer Helmut Newton whose seamy story-suggestive photos dotted the fashion magazines I paged through regularly. A Japanese kimono, a disheveled "corpse," a mix of patterns and textures, a bit of skin. All for an assignment in a photography class I was taking. We will not regret the past, nor wish to shut the door on it, as they say. (Click here to see another shot from this series.)
