Description
A black and white photographic print portrait of Gerard, captured at the Eric Bazaar Ball in Manhattan in 1998, walking the "Labels" category. Gerard appears just to the right of center frame, from the shoulders up. He is wearing a plaid suit jacket over a striped shirt with the collar turned up, and a checked necktie. He also has a chain necklace worn over the lapels of the jacket and a light-colored hat with the brim slanted slightly over his proper right eyebrow. He looks straight at the camera. A similarly dressed man is slightly out of focus behind Gerard, along with several other individuals. There are no inscriptions, front or back.
