Dear Matthew Alice: I would like to photograph you. Please entertain this request. — A.S., San Diego
Well, I’d probably open with a little juggling — a slide rule, a nectarine, and a flaming volume of the Encyclopedia Americana. Then some impressions — Plato? Aretha? Jacques Cousteau? Some clog dancing, then a big finish. “I Gotta Be Me”? “People”? Take your pick.
