About The Artwork

A rainy day in Luxemburg in 1968 interrupted the filming of the feature film If It's Tuesday This Must Be Belgium. The crew and actors, including this photographer, were parked in a café to wait for the rain to stop. Diana Mara Henry had her Leicaflex camera with her, and took many photographs, among which this is her favorite. The original vintage prints were made in her NYC darkroom in the 1970's. At the age of 20, she was already thinking about solitude and mortality. The woman looking out the window is a kind of alter-ego. She is surrounded but very alone. She has lived, but how much more lies ahead? And who is the young man across from her? Are they together or just strangers who were stranded together? Have they had a tiff or will they eventually talk and find a common bond? The contrast with the flirting couple right next to them highlights the poignancy. As with all of my photographs, please make this your own with your own thoughts and story. The unmounted print on a white border is somewhat dented along a one inch length at upper left of the image that doesn't break the emulsion. The framed print is mounted on gray board and signed on the board, in a hand-carved frame from Haiti, 1974. I will accept an offer for the unframed print and keep the framed one for myself. Your choice!

"Your photos are beautiful and represent such a powerful and passionate time in American History. I believe these photos will last and many years from now they will be looked at and studied just as Matthew Brady's classic and haunting Civil War photos are today..."- Ron Kovic tribute for Diana Mara Henry. Diana Mara Henry began her career as a photo editor and reporter for the Harvard Crimson, 1967-1969. After college she was a researcher for NBC news and a General Assignment Reporter for the Staten Island Advance. Going freelance in 1971, she photographed George McGovern -from the New Hampshire primaries to the National Democratic Convention, Bella Abzug and Elizabeth Holtzman. The most-published photographs of her career came as official photographer for the National Commission on International Women's Year to document the First National Women's Conference in Houston, TX, 1977. Other extended reports include Vietnam Veterans, 1970-1981; election night in Plains, Georgia, 1976; Women Office Workers/Nine-to-Five, 1979; the Women's Pentagon Action, 1980; One-Room Schools and Schoolteachers of Vermont (shown at the Brattleboro Museum in 1984) and One-Room Schools of Ulster County, NY, and the Natzweiler-Struthof Concentration Camp, Alsace, France. Grants from the NY State Council on the Arts, the NY Foundation for the Arts, and the Ms Foundation for Women have supported her projects. She is a resident of Newport, VT and has found there her Shangri-la.
