With Cunningham's signature, in pencil, on mount recto and her "Green Street" address label on mount verso.
 
One of Cunningham's most notable and recognizable images, "Triangles" illustrates a seamless marriage between space and form. Labeled as "The One" on her negative file, Cunningham knew instantly of her successful vision.
 
The photograph was taken in Los Angeles during a shoot that produced approximately three dozen variant 4x5 inch negatives of both individual and double nudes of her friends Jackie and Helen Greaves, who were also artists.
