"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

"HIPPIES DANCING" depicts some of the many participants who responded to Ken Kesey's invocations he made while on the stage built for the Poetic Hoo Ha.

Part of a collection of photographs taken at the Ken Kesey Poetic Hoo-Haw 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.


Please note that this photo and several others are featured in "ACID CHRIST" - Mark Christensen's new homage to famed author, Ken Kesey and LSD Guru, Timothy Leary. It is published by Schaffner Press and is available in bookstores everywhere. The cover as shown in the photo above features my portrait of Ken Kesey, taken at the Poetic Hoo-Haw in June 1976.

ISBN 978 1936182 00 8


"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

Hi, I'm a photographer and artist selling my fine art prints at clydekellerphoto.etsy.com.

My work is sold as Fine Art Giclee (inkjet) prints or fade resistant Fuji Crystal Archive (photographic) prints.

Clyde is known internationally for his historic photographs of Robert F. Kennedy. His RFK images are featured in Rory Kennedy's documentary film, "ETHEL" which debuted at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. The RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights has recently acquired key images from Clyde's RFK portfolios for their collection. Historic photos of author Ken Kesey, William Burroughs and actor Bill Murray are featured in Mark Christensen's book Acid Christ. Clyde's portrait of actor/director Warren Beatty is the cover photo for Peter Biskind's, Star. Several vintage documentary images appear in a new NFL films project, entitled, "Fearsome Foursome" as well as Dan Forrer's upcoming HBO documentary film centering on the birth of Hip Hop music. The Seattle Museum of History and Science now features his vintage Seattle skyline panoramas. His regional portraits of surviving pioneer families (and characters) appear in several new books, periodicals and webzines, including Ken Bilderback's, Creek with No Name, a new soft cover about the history of Cherry Grove, Oregon.

Clyde is the grandson of Clyde Leon Keller, (1872-1962) an important Oregon-based Plein-Air Impressionist Painter. His portfolios can be viewed at www.clydekeller.com.

A memory, a dream, a laugh. Looking through the family album and reminiscing about times gone by. Staring at a picture of the ocean, virtually hearing the waves and breathing the salty air. Photographs are an impactful and significant piece of our lives, evoking emotions of all shapes and sizes. I hope when you look at mine, it takes you someplace in your mind or heart, if only for a moment.

Curated by Rachel Maggard of S Platt Designs:

Artist Statement:

Hello my name is Rachel! I'm just a small town girl wishing to travel to put this photography skill of mine to work. I love art and photography to me they go hand in hand. From road trips out west when I was growing up I've enjoyed looking at the art of the natural landscape of the Grand Canyon, Canyonlands, Yellowstone, Black Hills and tons of other beautiful places out west. Native American art has always inspired my paintings from the colors and textures to designs. I would say a lot of my designs are more western themed, the influence is just a product of my travels. I hope you enjoy my page from the art work to the photography. Thank you and enjoy! :)
