What a story her life would make for a film. In fact she was in some early films.
This is a photograph (left) she took. She was with Edward Weston - his mistress and model.
She was in Barcelona, California, New Mexico, Russia.
Perhaps her life would make a good subject for Nanowrimo next month. I've never tried non-fiction. Perhaps "creative" non-fiction?
She took the photograph of the lady on the balcony in Barcelona, I think. And this is a photograph of her and her "husband," Roby (at left). They tie-dyed fabric in California and talked a lot about what else they would accomplish - but didn't.
(She and Roby were never married, although she denied that until the day she died, I guess, according to various blogs and Wikipedia entries.)
I don't know who the lovely dark-haired woman is, but it's supposed to be another Modotti photo.
Ahh! A week of female artists - femminismo
