colour picture is pure magic. -urbano

e saddest part of her life story is that when she married, she stopped shooting -- for many many years. she started up again a tiny bit when she was older. I am almost to that part of the biography now, I'll let you know what happens :)

Yes, a wonderful image indeed. Makes me remember the fascination of reading Huckleberry Finn for the first time in my youth...

that's great pic and it's quite unnoticed in the biggest volumes of history of photography, right?

Jeanne - i believe this is such a common thing for the great talents, only the greates can survive through the difficulties of life. well many polish women photographers did so as well...
