Show Girl

Feb 14, 2014

We were getting ready to go out. I looked over at Trudie and was struck by her beauty in this recurring intimate scene. It was a moment and an opportunity to share.

I recall my teacher and mentor Henry Callahan saying “photograph what you care about.” This was one of those moments, so I grabbed my camera and explored the scene. The light on her face defines her features. It’s a timeless image.

I entered the photograph in a show. An observer thought the glass on the counter was whiskey and my subject was in her dressing room getting ready to go on stage, not realizing it was Trudie.

After that I titled it “Show Girl”.
