"WILLIAM BURROUGHS PORTRAIT" Copyright © 1976 Clyde Keller
KESEY PHOTOS FEATURED ON THE HUFF POST
October 16, 2010
"The year was 1976. I was going to visit Kesey with my pal photographer Clyde Keller. Clyde was unique. In 1968, while barely more than a teenager, he sent off photos to Robert Kennedy Presidential campaign headquarters in Washington and soon found himself in the company of RFK advisor Pierre Salinger, taking photos of Kennedy as he campaigned throughout Oregon. Keller created what Kesey liked best: art made magic. I never met anybody who could compress creativity into such a vital, efficient package. Clyde’s camera was a silent machine gun, he shot photos like movie directors shot film and we were soon to be off to record “Kesey World” for posterity." Text by Mark Christensen
Beautifully detailed 180mm available light portrait made of Burroughs at the Kesey Poetic Hoo Haw. Photographed during his evening performance at McArthur Park. Please view our informal portrait of him, made earlier in the afternoon, with Portland Poet, Marty Christiansen.
Part of a collection of photographs taken at the Ken Kesey Poetic Hoo Ha held at Kesey's Barn Home near Pleasant Hill (Eugene, Oregon) during the day. An evening concert took place at the University of Oregon's McArthur Court where such luminaries as Wiliam Burroughs, Walt Curtis, Anne Waldman gave recitals. The party at the Barn Home attracted both local Oregon Poets such as Marty Christiansen, Walt Curtis and other notables such at Ken Babbs and Mark Christensen. Celebrities such as Charles Lloyd, William Burroughs, Paul Krassner and a then unknown Bill Murray attended as well.
See book on Ken Kesey by Mark Christensen entitled, "Acid Christ." Published by Schaffner Press, Inc. My photographs are featured exclusively in this new book. First edition has now sold out. Paperback forthcoming in September 2011.

PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY - Starred Review
"A fascinating hybrid.... An excellent cultural history that will also stand, perhaps ironically, as a valuable companion to [The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test].... Christensen focuses on the larger-than-life Kesey, "60s icon and enthusiastic proponent of illegal substances using his own experiences to bring the period to exubersnt life."
“Mark Christensen with Acid Christ has brought Ken Kesey to vibrant life—provocative, colorful, engaging and personal. What a pleasure to have a front-row seat into the mind of such a counter-culture icon.” —CHUCK PALAHNIUK, bestselling author, FIGHT CLUB and TELL ALL
“Contains not only interesting stuff I didn’t know about Kesey, but other information about the era—what led up to and followed it…[It] will prove to be the most amusing history book you’ve ever read!” —GRACE SLICK

Using vintage fabrics collected locally and from around the world I began making these pretty and petite hand held fabric bouquets with traditions in mind. They are designed to reflect upon an artful, historic and mindful celebration.
There are not a lot of bells and whistles attached, simply stated and authentic they are a comforting piece to hold during many of life's elevated events. The vintage fabrics are soft and thought provoking. Traditions in tribal ceremonies across the globe often incorporate fabrics into an event for blessings in warmth.
They are unique and come from my own design. If you love the feel of vintage fabrics and are looking for a non traditional way to celebrate an event or have an arrangement made for your home these soft flowers will make you smile.
