Vagina Postcards, 2009

I was inspired to make this series of photos by some of the research I did while writing YOU KNOW THIS GIRL. I have the good fortune to be close friends with the brilliant artist Katharine T. Jacobs. I told her my idea and what you see here is our collaboration. The series isn't, by definition, a companion piece to the play but I'd say that they're related. One begat the other.

I've included some suggested greetings to accompany the postcards. I believe you'll agree that my vagina is extremely versatile and perfect for all occassions!
