About this title

Synopsis:

Photographs from the 1960s and 1970s depict revolutionaries, writers, nonconformists, and other notables from Abbie Hoffman and Allen Ginsberg to Jimmy and Rosalyn Carter

From Booklist:

Felver started hanging around with the avant-garde in the '60s. Becoming a photographer, he started taking pictures of his outrefriends in the '70s, as they began metamorphosing into the old guard. Now 50, he has amassed a superb portrait gallery that he shares in a big, handsome book. Yes, that hairy-faced fellow on the cover, apparently obeying the instruction--"HOWL" --on his shirt, is Abbie Hoffman. Inside are eight separate images of the author of the poem "Howl" --Allen Ginsberg--showing him all by himself, with other Beat bards, teaching at Naropa, and even in surrogate form in a dual "portrait" of his painted likeness by Elaine de Kooning and Jack Kerouac's paint box. These rich monochrome portraits are marvelously open, friendly, even funny (Charles Bukowski bowing before a cooler o' beer), but what are Jimmy and Rosalyn Carter doing here? (Looking good, looking good.) If you want to know what being creative looks like, look long at these pages. Ray Olson
