Another passing to announce – Too many of the tribe going – day-by-day – Elsa Dorfman (“Ellie”), doyenne of the large-scale Polaroid, photographer par-excellence, of Allen (and Peter, Robert Creeley & others). She died this morning (she’d been ailing for a while), passed away from kidney failure. She was 83.

Our thoughts go out to her long-time partner, Harvey Silverglate
Rest in Peace, Ellie. We love you.
