María José — José MaríaTuesday, January 02, 2018
In my extensive Katheryn Petersen files there is an envelope marked: In Studio III — José María — Katheryn’s friend. This cannot possibly be right. In Spanish the name José María is common for men and its inverse María José for women.
I have no memory as to where María (I will play this safe) was from or if she spoke Spanish. The only memory I have of her was that when she faced my camera she was inscrutable.
I wonder what may have happened to her? I can tell you that since (the early 90s) when I took this photograph Miss Petersen has become a virtuoso accordionist who has a yearly show called Accordion Noir.
