Sunday Night Shooting Sessions

It would seem from what I've read of late (in an article by Jim Hoberman, which appeared in Slant) that Irving Rosenthal's estimation of Jack Smith's estate as probably worth millions was not so absurd after all since Barbara Gladstone looks poised to profit just this mightily from the sale of the newly minted prints struck from Jack's negatives. That, of course, is all business and, as Irving once remarked in another context (that of Love gone awry,) "business is business." Since Irving was responsible for more than one of these figures appearing in the images below (he was always sending people over to help Smith right up until Jack's death,) I hope he does not mind my mentioning him here. I only mean to suggest that he had some vital concern in their making.
