 1984
In '84 I started designing clothes, using fluorescent spray painted mesh, leather strips and the shells of hats. I sold them on this one occasion at an Alternative Art Fair, and photographed everyone who bought my pieces. A very young girl convinced her father to buy her a vest and hat. As she left, someone said, "Didn't you know, that was "Nick Auf der Maur's daughter! You should have photographed HIM!" Nick was a well-known and highly eccentric journalist and politician in Montreal, whom I later did PHOTOGRAPH for a magazine article. I now have no idea who this girl really is though, as Melissa recently told a friend it ISN'T her. "

Hey- thank you for the positive input! It's greatly appreciated! I hope you can make it to the exhibit in April (Montreal)
I will be having an auction of the photos at the end of it and after my costs are deducted, will be giving half of the proceeds to Doctors Without Borders. I'm starting the prices low to give people a fair chance as I think that art in galleries is out of reach for most people, so the prices will begin at $25.
The auction is live but people can begin bidding on the photos on the blog as well.The highest bid will win of course!
Take care-
linda
