Fountain of Youth (version 2), 1994-95

(see image)

This image is an homage to Bruce Nauman's Self Portrait as a Fountain, 1966-67. It was shot with the help of my then two year old daughter, who agreed to model in exchange for a Häagen-Dasz bar. She was still in diapers then, but we decided she would wear "grown up" underwear for the photograph. We shot two versions. This is version 2.
