“At the time, the woman in the photograph was my 'wife-to-be.' I've been enamored with white nurse dresses since seeing the famous post-war LIFE magazine image of the sailor kissing the nurse. As for her eyes being covered, that was a gut response. It played with her eyes being covered while the house's eyes (windows) are open. The covering on the house was a fantastic graphic backdrop, and I loved the way the sun hammered the whole scene with light.” — Michael Northrup
