Fantasy Face-Lift

Maria Robledo sent us some these images she found in her vast photo archive. At a photo shoot at Maria’s studio, Suzanne Shaker and I were playing “face lift”, standing behind each other and gently “lifting” the other’s face. It was a funny, weird, grown-up girls’ game played by women who’d never actually get a face lift. We’re game to go where our faces take us…

For a moment, we found a way to improvise younger selves.

Spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence.
Summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance.
Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence.
Winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance
