I think this has the longest title of any work of art I've featured in my journal. I first saw this photograph on the cover of Artforum magazine, and I was immediately taken by the bold colors and by how happy the model looked. The title didn't make much sense to me, but that's because the cover image was cropped to exclude the color bar, which is a Kodak Three Point Reflection Guide. I have to admit that I'm not entire certain what a Kodak Three Point Reflection Guide is, but at least now I know what it looks like.
