Description
Wearing only her birthday suit, a tiara, and a pair of eyeglasses, the artist is seen here ascending resplendently from her backyard hot tub, surrounded by an appreciative audience. Noggle sometimes described her photographs as chronicling “the saga of the fallen flesh,” but the expression on her face in this picture tells us her lust for life remains undiminished in the face of fading eyesight, an expanding waistline, and other indignities of age.
