Mary writes: The paragraph below is a clipping from the AU Daily e-mail sent to Auburn University employees for daily news and events on August 26, 2004. The exhibition from a private collector has one large photograph by our beloved Viggo Mortensen entitled “Scared Brigit.” The subject is three dogs with some interesting color and motion. I did not really have a chance to take time to view/study the photograph as I was working at the time but will be going back for a non-work visit. Just thought y’all should hear about it.
