SELF PORTRAIT, CRANES BEACH, NOV 1971

While in my graduate class at M. I. T. another student and I went to Cranes Beach. It was 23 F and I had red LL Bean long underwear on. I set the camera, focused on the shadow, metered it and my friend, Donald Woodman, tripped the shutter as I called out to him. I dressed quickly but clumbsily as my feet were frozen like blocks. Later, once we were in the car, Donald told me two little old ladies had stood on the bluff above and watched the whole production.

Shot with a 4×5 Sinar view camera using 100 asa film and developed in Versapan.
