Six years ago, these nameless tiny glasses were sent to me by Steve from China. The glasses were subsequently featured in four photo shoots (Marleen 168, Petra 271, Nel 295, Claudine 103) and then forgotten about. I brought them to Berlin with Clare in mind. The dimensions turned out to be just right. Some of Steve's glasses are problematic as the lenses have no anti-reflective coating to speak of, but in this case there was no problem. I asked Clare to look at the stem of the willow and that was enough. An attempt to take a satisfactory "en face" portrait failed because of an excess of glare in the lenses.
