Natalie Wood in rehearsals for West Side Story

I photographed so many bands, pop stars, actors and teen idols in the 70’s. Many of them were certainly not that memorial and the photos went nowhere. Still the numbers were in my favor and several handful of times in my young career did I get to meet and photograph some real icons. I can not tell you how cosmic it was to photograph David Byrne and Talking Heads at UCLA in 1977. You really knew that something wonderful was happening. It is my great joy to share these images with my tumblr fans.

"I think human consciousness is a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self-aware. Nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself - we are creatures that should not exist by natural law… We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self, that accretion of sensory experience and feelings, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everbody’s nobody… I think the honorable thing for our species to do is to deny our programming. Stop reproducing, walk hand in hand into extinction - one last midnight, brothers and sisters opting out of a raw deal."
