Artists Kitchen. 1969
I would see unusual images of a kitchen in the studio.
This is like a classic still-life setting.

Saki and Scissor Suicide. 1972
Some days in the Chapman Park Studio 15, I would have a moment
where I would see some image ironically in front of me and pull
out the Leica M5 and catch it.






Boyd Elder and Child. 1969
An Art School friend Boyd Elder from Chouinard/Cal Arts in 1966. I am
visiting his studio in El Paso, Texas. He's living in a converted water tower,
a circular room with bed, guitar + first child. Boyd is the artist for the Eagles
Self-Portrait Bellevue Studio. 1969
In 1969, I lived at the Bellevue Studio in Echo Park, friends would drop by
during the day and have tea with me while I sketched the talk about ideas.

John consciously explored the camera's power "as a tool for visual poetry", constantly carrying the camera around his neck to take fascinating photographs
of the found -- people, places, and things. These photographs reveal the "social revolution" in John's own life during this distinctive 22-year time frame.
