Jennifer Froese's & My Mother's Red Rebozo
Monday, June 11, 2007

When my mother traveled to Mexico from Argentina in 1952 she was given there a red rebozo. Its intense, rich red reminded me of the robe from that first Cinemascope production The Robe with Richard Burton and Jean Simmons. The robe was the robe of Jesus Christ. My mother's rebozo was made of rough cotton (I believe) and the red came from a natural vegetable dye. I have treasured it all these years adn I ofen used it as a portrait prop.

When I met Jennifer Froese, a friend of Bif Naked, she seemed very sad. She was the very opposite of her friend. When she posed for me this sadness was evident but wonderful at the same time. She revelead her tattoo and here you see but a glimpse of it and of my mother's red Mexican rebozo.
