On an entirely different note, the backstory to Ruth Orkin’s iconic photograph, “American Girl in Italy,” is told in this NY Times obituary about its principal subject, who died on Tuesday at the age of 90. I think those of you who are street photographers will particularly enjoy it. The article also includes a great picture of Orkin, hanging out her Central Park West window, with Nikon F in hand. (Amusingly enough, an almost identical shot was taken two years earlier.)
