Images of Blythe Bohnen, Self-Portrait: Vertical motion down, medium

  1. Long A black and white photograph of a blurred, gaunt face and the faded outline of the subject's neck and shoulders. The blurring produces a ghostly outline that issues from the subject. Both apparition and subject stare directly at the viewer; two parallel, white lines connect their eyes.
