Tete a tete

How do!

Dancing in the Park

"Like millions of others I was ready for the new thinking and lifestyle the Sixties ushered in. I embraced that novel sensibility which implied that "you can do anything you want this time around." We had it all. Charismatic visionaries, wildly colorful clothes, hair (lots of it!) and incredible music you would snap your fingers to.

I helped put together New York's first Human Be-In (Central Park- Easter of 1967) and also began my career as a photojournalist around this time.
Moving to San Francisco
in August 1968 I was definitely on some kind of a mission capturing all the wonder on film.

Wasn't that a time!"
