IN SINCERE APPRECIATION FOR YOUR TOLERANCE from the DARWIN CORPS of PHOTOGRAPHERS & CAMERAMEN  (signed by eighteen photographers and cameramen)

(signed by eighteen photographers and cameramen)

What happened to Azaria Chamberlain, and then to Lindy has been the subject of great creativity, just a few example of which I have collected here, under the various forms of media headings. Some is held in private collections, some are public, some have been retained by the artists. Seemingly reflective of Lindy’s entire saga, not all of it may be appealing to everyone, and perhaps in some cases even seem crass. I have tried to include a bit of everything, without making any judgement.
