I had many portraits taken of me during my acting career and found
myself wondering what to do with them all. I began cutting and pasting
those I had several copies of into these photomontages . To me they
more acurately reflect an image of the 60's and 70's than the originals
in their context.

I found the quote below summed up my feelings about them.
"To be born a woman has been to
be born, within an allotted and confined space, into the keeping
of men...this has been at the cost of a woman's self being split
into two...she must continuously watch herself..and so she comes
to consider the surveyor and the surveyed within her as the two
constituent yet always distinct elements of her identity as a woman.
Men look at women, women watch themselves being looked at...her
own sense of being in herself is supplanted by a sense of being
appreciated as herself by another...thus she turns herself into
an obect - and most particularly an object of vision; a 'sight'.
