Carly Simon, Los Angeles 1974 “Carly Playing Possum”

By Norman Seeff
About the image
"Carly arrived at my studio in a casual cotton skirt and blouse. I asked her what she had on underneath. She stripped down to a black teddy and began dancing around the studio to the soundtrack of SHAFT. The image used on the cover of her album PLAYING POSSUM was considered to be one of the sexiest ever to be on an album and she has recounted how she was criticized for this. Carly was actually in the process of a series of yoga exercises!! She later commented “Looking at myself I thought – my god, I had a baby 4 months ago. The shot doesn’t go along exactly with the image of new motherhood but I liked it!”

Release Notes:
Limited Edition prints of Norman Seeff’s classic images are produced under his supervision at his studio in Los Angeles, California. These are archival pigment prints produced from the original drum-scanned negatives on MOAB Entrada Rag Natural, an acid-free, 100% cotton rag fine art paper.

Collector's Notes:
Norman Seeff will only produce 50 prints plus 5 Artist Proofs from any single negative.
Prices therefore depend on the size you wish to purchase, and how many of the 50 have previously sold.

Each one is hand-signed and numbered by Norman Seeff.
