Portrait - 1972

She was the girlfriend of a friend, and I made some informal portraits one day when they were visiting me. Then I forgot to really look at the negatives until this year... 46 years later!


My only defence is that I was obsessed with getting out of Ontario that summer and relocating to the West Coast - which I did - and at that point my life changed drastically. I also put away most of the work I'd been doing, as the mountains and coast and my new life were vivid and all-encompassing. Negatives and slides went into a box to deal with later. I guess that means now.


Window light. All other details are lost in the mists of time. Photographed in Waterloo, Ontario (Canada); scanned from the original negative. Don't use this image on websites, blogs, or other media without explicit permission © 1972 James R. Page - all rights reserved.
