“I began the day with mounting a print of you. The one sitting in the hammock.—The first I made. And it looks very well.—You are to have it.—So, there are three A+1 prints for you.—I don’t know how you will like them. How your friends will like them.—The three are different.—Each you.—Each an achievement in photography.—Very direct.—Very simple. —” (Stieglitz to Waldo Frank, 25 December 1920 [YCAL]).
