Today is Jim Morrison’s birthday. He would have been 78 years old.

This is a rare photograph of Jim smiling. It was taken in the Dade County Courthouse in October 1970.

I was his first defense witness at his trial. You can read the whole story at www.TreeO.com/Morrison.

Also, my friend, Alan Graham (Jim’s brother-in-law) wrote a book about Jim and his family. It’s available on Amazon as a Kindle book here.

Janis Joplin

Janis Joplin - West Palm Beach Rock Festival - West Palm Beach, Florida - November 30, 1969


West Palm Beach Rock Festival - West Palm Beach, Florida - November 30, 1969

This photograph of Janis was shot at the West Palm Beach Rock Festival. Just three and a half months after Woodstock, it was nicknamed Woodstock South. Also at the three day festival was Jefferson Airplane, Sly Stone and the Rolling Stones. I camped out in a tent and indured rain and mud.

Janis died of an overdose 10 months later.

I produced this special effect print in the darkroom over 40 years ago.

In the late sixties and early seventies, I wanted to do special effects photography. The only market, at that time, was album covers and posters for rock groups.

 

I never realized that someday the photographs would be classics as straight images.

Enjoy!
