There are light creases and marks throughout the work. To the lower left of the image there are two scuffs and one restoration. There are a series of very small pinprick spots to the left of the figure's genitals which may be original to the photographic process. One very minute tear along the extreme edge near the upper right corner, not visible when framed. Some small frits along the edges. There is a slight undulation to the image. The number "440" is written in blue pencil along the verso; there are three pieces of tape affixed to the verso; stamped along the verso. The work is hinged to a backing along the upper edge. Framed under glass; light wear to the frame. The paper backing of the frame has been cut along three edges to allow for inspection of the photograph.
