This photo of Caroline was made during a evening nude figure session. As I was loading film in my Rollei SL66 camera I looked up and Caroline was holding up the lace we were draping over her body. I liked what I saw and made 4 or 5 exposures. They ended up being some of the best images of the night!
Years later this photograph was hanging in my gallery and a woman came in and was staring at it for around 10 minutes. She asked me who the photographer was? After I let her know it was me and the story of how it came about, she said, "Do you know what you have here?....This is the Mona Lisa of photography". Words that even I wouldn't have thought of, but so glad she did.
