2:05 pm: i'll expand on this later. in brief, i began the process of locating and sending for digitization a number of important paintings which have been documented as transparancies. fortunately, they were in a dark place and seem on first look to be in ok shape. this is one of the black & white photos, which is glossy & therefore hard to shoot. during this period, i was making a series of paintings and drawings of construction workers, who would come over from a nearby site to pose. they are all in private, corporate and museum collections in Athens.
