IDA ROLF PHOTOS PORTRAITS OF A PIONEER

 

I MET DR. ROLF IN 1971, BEGAN MY ROLFING TRAINING AND ON THE SECOND DAY OF THE CLASS I WAS TAKING PICTURES FOR DR. ROLF’S BOOK. MOST OF MY PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY WAS UNDER WATER CHASING FISH, SHARKS, AND OTHER ELUSIVE CRITTERS. I DIDN’T KNOW MY TOUGHEST SUBJECT WOULD BE DR. ROLF. BY 1975, I WAS ATTENDING CLASSES, DOING PHOTOGRAPHIC RESEARCH ON CLASS MODELS, A PHOTOGRAPHIC STUDY OF FASCIA AT THOMAS JEFFERSON IN PHILADELPHIA AND ROLFING DR.ROLF. I DECIDED TO MAKE DR.ROLF MY SUBJECT. ONE PROBLEM, SHE DIDNT LIKE HER PICURE TAKEN NOR DID SHE LIKE PHOTOS OF HER SMILING. I HAD TO PROMISE HER NOT TO LET ANYONE SEE THEM UNTIL SHE DIED. I KNOW YOU WILL ENJOY THESE PHOTOS AS MUCH AS I ENJOYED TAKING THEM.
