Mother Dwarf, Lang and me

Mother Dwarf & Smith – fotos by Jim Lang

The top 4 fotos were shot by poet-artist-potter-photographer Jim Lang. I was pushing Mother Dwarf to the Brandt Gallery for the opening of her one-woman show . . . probably her Lost & Found show in 2004 — she had five solo shows between her first at the age of 68 and the last just before her death at 79.

I looked up and saw Lang and lowered my head and said to Mom, “There’s Lang . . . should we run him over with the wheelchair?”

She laughed and replied, “No, too many witnesses.”

The fotos below are of Lang. Met him in 1986 when he submitted art to my first issue of Artcrimes. Have read poetry and published with him many a time and place since. He’s one of the good ones.
