Insect Fear

Another influential artist was Robert Heinecken, director of the Photography Department at UCLA.  To impress him, while taking his class in 1975, I conceived of a photo sequence in the style of Duane Michaels, INSECT FEAR.  It’s like a nightmare where a woman sleep-walks in the night, runs to the kitchen, she is confronted with a giant grasshopper, hides inside a cabinet.  My friend Gabriella posed as an alter-ego for myself.  Original prints of the 4 photos were included in an artist portfolio magazine edited by my friend Eve Babitz, Manifesto LAX, cover art by Jon Van Hamersveld.
