Janis Joplin

For the photo of Janis Joplin in Issue No. 6, I walked with my cameras to her nearby flat in the Haight-Ashbury where she lived with her cat and dog.  I, too, lived in the Haight where I had turned two bedrooms of our three bedroom house into a photo studio, the same studio in which Janis subsequently gave an unforgettable full-out performance for me and my camera in what I have come to call the “concert for one.”
