Under what catagoy in the MFAH could I locate this picture of Mrs. Emmett
Where can we get hold of, or look at your 'Pissing Contest' portfolio, Judy?
And, BTW, landscapes by Morley Baer, he used to call them 'topography
views.' Wanted by the NY Met, circa 1998; Suburbian Views, landscapes of
an expanding America. I seem to recall View Camera magazine honored a
photographer who did a portfolio on something like that.
Re: Women Pissing and Portfolios; it seems Hustler or Penthouse photographed
a Womans Pissing Contest, photographs of women pissing while on top of a
bar, into a glass; standing, squatting, pissing for distance. As I recall,
however, the views were meants to showcase pictures of women's vaginas.
And then, ther's body landscapes . . . 'nuf?
