For 40 years, I’ve photographed myself on my birthday wearing nothing but my white Lollipop underpants, shoes and socks. I made my first Birthday Suit self-portrait in Death Valley, CA in 1974.
Without fail, I’ve faced my camera every April 22nd since then to create a coded history of one woman’s journey through time.
As a girl-child of the 1950s, I came of age before women’s lib, and wanted to buck the stereotypes of a culture that branded me a pretty girl, thin enough to be a fashion model and not much more. Armed with my camera and tripod, I found a way to define myself on my own terms in the most open, vulnerable way I could.
My long-term project will continue for as long as I live. In 2015, I turn 70. I’m currently working on a book & film about my Birthday Suits.

…Near the village of Braachaat, outside Antwerp, Belgium. The last photo shows a grotto-like cave under the mansion that may have been used as a bar in the past.
We never decided, at least I think, what “ay-oh river” means. Forgive me…but, y’know, you’ve forgiven me before for not getting it right. At least we had a good time. This was really life-changing. Hopefully I’ll see you in the near future.

The Pallas´s Cat, also called Manul, is a small wildcat living in the grasslands and steppe of central asia.
It is named after the german naturalist Peter Simon Pallas, who first described the species in 1776.
THIS IS ME AS A CAT
You’re gonna say “It is named after the german naturalist Peter Simon Pallas, who first described the species in 1776,” but not tell us how he described it?? Probably went something like this:
"Imagine the fattest cat you can, basically all fur covered tum and torso. Then imagine… hmmm. Goofy faces? Like, if the cat were your fun uncle meeting a baby for the first time and trying to get the baby to crack up laughing. So yeah, a tubby, goofy, uncle cat. That is brownish. Name it after me, I’m awesome."
