Photographer's Note

A nostalgic memory of "The Seven Year Itch".

In about the year 2000, I took a group of Media Studies students from my college in England on a “field visit” to Los Angeles, to see the film studios and other vaguely Media-related destinations. All right: a holiday. We stayed in Venice Beach, and did the media stuff, but also had a couple of days of general sight-seeing. On one of these days, our mini-bus driver took us up to the Griffith Observatory, an art deco landmark built in 1935, actually very near Universal Studios. For the view! One of our little projects was to shoot some fashion-style photographs. Several of the students (both female and male) obliged as models, and here is one of them. The day was quite windy, and the poor girl was trying to hold her dress down. Not very successfully. She was a good sport and saw the funny side of the incident, as you can see. Now more than twenty years later, I feel it’s OK to let the cat out of the bag (she didn’t mind at the time the image being shown in the exhibition of our trip when back in college). The view from the Observatory was great! But I’m not confident about the Moderators’ response...
