About

During 1977 Pat Larter performed twice a week for a year ‘a portrait in time’. A super 8 colour film compilation was made of these performances and simply entitled ‘Portrait’. Black and white photographic stills were also made of the performances, which Larter often used as part of her
mail art. This photograph playfully makes reference to the 1963 portraits of Christine Keeler by Lewis Morley.
