"Whether I am making a portrait of a monk in Bhutan or of an American rock star on the side streets of Istanbul, the one absolute parallel in what I am trying to convey to the viewer is the simple humanity found in one's eyes, body language or facial expression. That unspoken sense of 'Here we are - all in it together."

"ROD STEWART'S FOOTBALL MATCH" by CARINTHIA WEST
Silver Gelatin Print
16 x 20 inches
"My friend and roommate, model and photographer, Rory Flynn, (The shapely bum on the right, and the daughter of Errol Flynn), her friend Diane (left) and I used to hang out at Rod Stewart's football match every Saturday in Coldwater Canyon. Everyone who was anyone in rock and roll used to congregate there, and most of the guys ended up playing. At any one time you'd have half the Rolling Stones, The Faces, or The Who on the field. Plus, producers like Ian La Frenais (who wrote 'Porridge') or actors Ian McShane or David Hemmings. It was all shouting and swearing on the pitch. The guy on the right is Paul Nichols, the drummer from Widowmaker, and if you look carefully in the background on the right, you'll see Rod Stewart. This photograph is one of my favorites, and gave me the title for my archive: 'Hanging Out.' ...no one is posing, it is just the way we were... being young, having fun..."

GEORGE HARRISON & MAHARISHI, INDIA, 1968"
by PATTIE BOYD
Archival Pigment Print on Cotton Rag Paper
16 x 20 inches
George is captured here showing Maharishi some polaroids during a lecture.
Pattie Boyd was instrumental in the Beatle's and particularly George Harrison's interest in India and Eastern philosophy and music. It was on her suggestion that they go to meet Maharishi and explore Transcendental Meditation which soon became a major feature of George's daily life.
"While we were in Rishikesh at Maharishi's ashram studying meditation, there were occasionally intimate talks just for the Beatles. Clearly a lot more meditators were expected, as you can see in the background of this photograph an Indian builder on a rooftop. In the foreground George-wearing a pretty, floral Deborah and Clare shirt-is showing something to the Maharishi." - Pattie Boyd
