Gabrielle, Circa 1970-1975

These are my photos in a growing collection of my then-young niece, now on the verge of becoming a grandmother herself, as I discover/rediscover them through explorations of my early archives of negatives and slides.  Most have never been before printed or published.  Included is my personal favorite, and perhaps favorite portrait of ANYONE, ever, of Gabrielle in her NYC apartment, dressed in sailor-stripe dress.  This photo always puts me in mind of the classic 1899 Gertrude Kasebier photograph, “Blessed Art Thou Among Women“.
