My wonderful photo collector, Angus, in England, sent photos of my Clash Photo and Certificate framed. I’m terrible about compiling these. I’ve many framed images lost in emails and files.
This makes me so sad. I sell my photos for less than framing costs. I should have learned how to frame, bought a house instead of photographing punk. I wanted to do that. If I had, I’d be living in house now worth a cool Million or Million and A Half. Instead I was, and remain, obsessed w/making ART. So sad.
Teaching and Coaching makes me happy cos I help so many. I make art for myself, teaching for others. That was the plan. Not becoming a famous punk photographer and all it entails.
Always teaching, sharing, creating for the benefit of others.
Working for the clampdown. The Clash were THE best LIVE band ever! X came close, and of course, the Ramones. But I’m a political animal. No one was ever more prophetic and right on than the Clash. What say you?
