PHOTO OF MYSTERY WOMAN BY TOLOFF FOUND IN ANTIQUE SHOP IN CRESTED BUTTE, COLORADO
I was recently contacted by Faith G. who told me that she had purchased a Toloff photo in an antique shop in Crested Butte, Colorado in 1998. She was nice enough to agree to share it with us:
She says, "I was so smitten by her-she intrigues me still. The woman, girl really, in the photo captured my attention the minute I walked into the shop-her eyes are haunting. It's as if she has lived a life well beyond her years. I would love to learn more."
We know that Toloff only worked from his studios in Chicago, but his reputation was such that many people made appointments with Toloff to have their photos taken by him when they passed through Chicago.
So, can anyone identify or tell us anything about Toloff's "Woman from Crested Butte"? .
