This is currently not news anymore since it’s out for more than a week, but I just couldn’t let this one go by. Loved the way this project came out.
Lady Pink sanctified by Sweet Meat Co. Read all about it inside…
I don’t like my copyrighted images to be reproduced in books or elsewhere without my permission. But sometimes I get a kick out of seeing how my documentary photos have morphed into something completely different. Lady Pink sent me the photo below from an art piece by a collective in Rochester, NY called The Sweetmeat Co. I admit Pink does look like an angelic vandal in my original photo taken in 1982 (see below) but it was a surprise to both of us to see her sanctified in 2010. – by Martha Cooper
