Autograph letter signed.
Pacific Palisades, 14. II. 1967. - Large 4to. 2 pp. To a photographer named Bishop: "Got your letter and samples of photo experiments. You must not think because I used 'glum + sombre' that I was disparaging your work. It's simply that I can't stand the 'sad gorilla' aspect of myself which I often see in photos. Of the hundreds of photos people have taken from me there are only about a half-dozen I really like (when you come again I'll show you my favourite one). In general photography leaves me cold. I never used a camera in my life. Nor will I in the future. Now and then in magazines I find photos I like - could be in a good or cheap magazine. These experimental ones you just sent - I must confess they too leave me cold. Too slick for my taste. Too commercial. But I'm prejudiced - so don't take it hard. I hung out with advertising men, salesmen and artists both, when in my twenties - and became thoroly [!] disgusted with everything which they found exciting [.]". - On stationery with printed letterhead. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
