Summary: An interview of Jane Koegel conducted 2000 May 22, by Paul Karlstrom, for the Archives of American Art, in Koegel's home, San Francisco, Calif.
Kogel discusses the difference between posing for painters and photographers; social aspects of the sessions; the rapport between artist and model; and the possibility of the model's personality "getting in the way"; posing for Letbetter as a kind of performance, in which she "plays to the black lens"; and how posing can provide a life-enriching experience outside day-to-day life.
