Self Portrait As A Drowned Girl, 2006

This photograph is an homage to Hippolyte Bayard who, on the back of HIS Drowned Self Portrait wrote:

The corpse which you see here is that of M. Bayard, inventor of the
process that has just been shown to you. As far as I know this indefatigable
experimenter has been occupied for about three years with his discovery.
The Government which has been only too generous to Monsieur Daguerre, has said
it can do nothing for Monsieur Bayard, and the poor wretch has drowned himself.
Oh the vagaries of human life....! ... He has been at the morgue for several
days, and no-one has recognized or claimed him. Ladies and gentlemen, you'd
better pass along for fear of offending your sense of smell, for as you can
observe, the face and hands of the gentleman are beginning to decay.
