I was hanging around Bethesda Fountain in Central Park, when (peripherally) I saw a flash being fired. As I turned to see why, I knew immediately, who the photographer was, simply by watching her work. I'd never seen her face before but had seen her photographs the year before, in the New Documents show at MOMA. I'd never seen anything like them, so I when I tried to make a picture of her, I was too much in awe to do anything that might ruin her shot, such as include her face in the frame or get any closer. When she was done, I approached and asked her if she was who I though she was. She said yes and was very nice, but mostly wanted to talk about me, since I told her I was studying photography. After a while she went off in search of more subjects. I could see why she could get the pictures she got. She had a gift for putting people at ease. Still, I regret not having made a better shot of her.
