KayTuesday, November 13, 2018
I first photographed Kay when she was 22. Now that she is 61 she consented to pose for me.
In the language of the 21st century these are not nice pics. They are lovely photographs which I took (and did not capture). Kay is beautiful. She is not still beautiful.
When my 74 year-old-Rosemary parades around the bedroom without any clothes, she is not the woman I married 50 years ago. Neither am I. That is certain.
Our 21st century esthetic will accept lines on an old man as being character lines. But if I show those lines on a woman’s face they are character assassination.
Kay is beautiful. And that is just the way it is. So there.
