"Take a Picture--It'll Last Longer..."
...the chapter from Live Nude Girl on photography in general and one exceptionally quirky photographer in particular is excerpted here on Memoirville. Appearing in tandem is a Gchat interview conducted by the whipsmart Katherine Wootton. "You often mention art as a means to a kind of immortality; is the desire to be seen and be recorded part of a more universal urge to resist death? Would you describe that urge as essentially vain?" she asks. You can read my response, along with the whole entire conversation here. Thanks to Katherine for the acute and intuitive questioning.
