At some point when I was in Miami and working as an assistant, LIFE Magazine had some photo competition for 30 UNDER 30, if I recall. Something. I'll have to look it up. I located my SASE-portfolio of 8 b/w RC machine prints (#2488). Two must be missing. They're in sleeves, a bit knocked-up.

This is the tamest shot.
Very Weegee. Very Diane Arbus.
All mine.

Before RIZE! Before PARIS IS BURNING.
As far back as October 1980.
Hallowe'en.

This is the only digital copy of one of the eight stamped #2488.
