The Woman in BlueFriday, November 17, 2017
|Macarena Aldama - Buenos Aires - April 2017|
Sometimes when I take a photograph I have the idea of something that came before me in my mind. Sometimes the similarity of my photographs to earlier works (Picasso’s) is simply a coincidence. Such was almost the case in this photograph of Macarena Aldama which I took in Buenos Aires this past April in Nora Patrich’s studio in Bella Vista. That is her work behind her. When Aldama showed up for our photo session and took out the lovely blue silk robe it was Patrich who suggested we pose her by her painting of the woman in blue.
