Wynn Bullock has long been one of my favorite West Coast photographers. He is known for his landscapes and his nudes, of which this one is the most famous. What an astounding image! Photographed on a remote ranch in the Big Sur mountains, the woman’s baby is napping. She will soon have to give up the baby for adoption for an unknown future, hence the title. (The book on the right is about sailing at night.) (See more of his work here.)
