    Features twelve images (selfies) taken in the 1980's by the author of herself in semi-alluring poses, looking mostly away from the camera. These were then enlarged to 2'X4' and exhibited for an art show. High quality thick paper. Can be requested from the library. Makes me think of Facebook profile pictures, just about anybody could probably do this and have.
