Too exciting to sleep, looking for the people in my photographs day and night. Just now it’s Louise Nevelson at the installation party in 1978 for her Sky Gate New York, at the World Trade Center. Louise Nevelson, Alice Neel, carol Bellamy, Letty Cottin Pogrebin, Midge Costanza, Jean O’Leary…and about that many other feminist heavy-hitters I don’t know. Just talked to a new friend who liked the photos of Bella Abzug and Allen Ginsberg…
