Navigating their way through the most innocuous of scenes, the three poets descend into the abyss. McCain calls upon her guide, Sharon Tate, for advice. Conway and Trinidad plummet down a series of rabbit holes and time tunnels, where they revisit first meetings and mass murders, and ponder the contents of Anne’s purse.
Saul Leiter is one of my favorite photographers. The Hound and I saw a show of his work in Paris and we both flipped. He is considered one of the Godfathers of modern color photography. He passed away in 2013. Below is a small sampling of his work. - Gillian McCain
