|Alexandra Elizabeth Waterhouse-Hayward 1989|
Back in December a friend asked me what it was, that as the photographer that I am, that I would hang in my home’s walls.
I answered here that they are mostly family portraits.
I forgot about one photograph that is hanging in my bathroom. It has been properly framed so as not to be affected by the moisture that it is subject to.
In 1989 I was working on a project for a gallery show that involved 12 or more women in tubs. One weekend my Rosemary asked me, “What floozy is coming to pose for you tomorrow?” I answered, “Someone you know, our daughter Alexandra. She asked to be part of the project.” Since she was 21, I had another subject of mine, about her age, come so that I would make it a bit more comfortable for all.
I am so glad that I am not a plumber but a photographer. What would my friend Tiffany ask a plumber as to what he/she would have on their home walls?
The peculiar look of the image here is that is a scanned Kodak Kodalith b+w positive mounted on silver card. It looks nice on a wall but the direct light of the scanner affects a bit the lovely effect that resembles an old Daguerreotype.
