The pin holes in the corners of this vintage photographic print indicate that the photographer, Bruno Benini, had chosen to showcase this particular print (along with others) on the black felt boards mounted on the entrance foyer walls of his 6 McKillop Street studio in Melbourne.
Taken in 1970, the shot features model Sandi Mitchell in cloche cap with Moya shoe and flintlock pistol. The pistol had been borrowed by the Benini’s from a local gun supplier, just for use during the photo shoot.
