I Am A Photograph is the debut album by French singer Amanda Lear, released in April 1977 by West German label Ariola Records. It contains the European hit singles "La Bagarre" (1975), "Blood and Honey" (1976), "Tomorrow", "Alphabet" and "Blue Tango." Later editions of the album also feature the single "Queen Of Chinatown" and then replaced "La Bagarre" or "She's Got the Devil In Her Eyes."
In Allmusic's review of the album Michael Freedberg writes: "Lear, previously known as a Roxy Music album cover model and a protégé of Salvador Dali, appears here as a cabaret countess. She enunciates sexually naughty suggestions in a smoke-and-velvet rasp. Her best subversions hit a dancer's most salacious fantasies dead on. Most of these songs support their studied lewdness with absurdly different music, creating tangible friction (e.g., "Alligator" — funk bottom, frothy violins on top) that makes Lear's tape-loop voice feel even naughtier. All of Lear's tempos assault disco norms, either as sleaze or ultra-fast high-energy. An album not to be missed."
The rights to the Ariola-Eurodisc back catalogue are currently held by Sony BMG Music Entertainment. I Am a Photograph was released as a mid-priced compilation CD combined with 1978's Sweet Revenge or 1981's Incognito in Russia in 2001, but remains unreleased on compact disc in the rest of the world.
