IT’S ALWAYS TEA TIME!
I photographed The Grateful Dead’s Robert Hunter for Rolling Stone. This shot was taken on a cold, bright December morning at Robert’s home in San Rafael, California. We drove up and there was frost on all the windows of the cars in the neighborhood. Robert was the most gentle man. I could tell how comfortable he was with a guitar in his hands, and how uncomfortable he was without one, so the bulk of the morning was spent listening to Robert play some of his favorite guitars as I shot. Robert’s wife, Maureen, is British and made the best Earl Grey tea I’ve ever had. We built a fire. Sometimes, many times, it’s nice to not make a shoot feel like a shoot, and more like a hang.
Pair with an illustrated tour of literary geography.
"This photograph of Boulevard du Temple in Paris was made in 1838 by Louis Daguerre, the brilliant guy who invented the daguerreotype process of photography.
Aside from its distinction of being a super early photograph, it’s also the first photograph to ever include a human being.
Because the image required an exposure time of over ten minutes, all the people, carriages, and other moving things disappear from the scene. However, in the bottom left hand corner is a man who just so happened to stay somewhat still during the shot — he was having his shoes shined.”
