Yesterday I printed a 40 x 50 inch photograph from my first series of self-portraits entitled, Mrs. Brown. Its a photo of myself pregnant (belly from the prop shop) smoking a cig and holding a cocktail. Photos from my mom in 1976 were my inspiration-those were the good old days!
For a few months, I was was completely taken into a world of dress up and play in Mrs. Brown’s home in Pasadena. It is a body of work I made with all heart, curiosity and very little concept. My intention was only to explore the art of photography and my place within it. It is fun to have the opportunity to blow up this image for a collector, ten years later, with a great sense of humor.
