No shit? Well, the plot thickens.

What's the picture titled? Is that the whole thing or a cropped version?

Kerouac is the first thing I thought of when I saw that cover.

It's a nice cover. The only thing I would change is the faux-distressed lettering. Looks too much like it belongs on a t-shirt one would see for sale at Walmart.

It reminds me of a Warhol's silkscreening technique. The first thing I thought of is Warhol's Brillo boxes (maybe because of the colors and repitition).

Robert Frank photo! Outstanding cover.


Yes, my first thought was Robert Frank. But then I thought "No, it's Larry Clark who did that 'Tulsa' book and directed 'Kids.'

Since you identified it as Frank, it's probably Frank.

But until just now--another in an endless flow of 'DOH' moments--I never noticed the similarities in Frank and Clark.

Yeah, nice cover. Steamrolls all kinda 'rules'--visual, typographical, graphical, 'artistic.' Nasty blunt. From a buick sex. (Couldn't resist the pun.)

'TTL'=photo-speak shorthand for 'Though The Lens.' Life as lens, lens as life. Etc. What ya see is what ya get so be careful what ya cast yer eye upon.

First Thought:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Frank
http://www.lensculture.com/frank.html

Second thought:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Clark

Definitely not Larry Clark - I'm looking for the specific photo from Frank, but pretty sure it's from The Americans.

Yes, and Kerouac wrote the introduction to The Americas. I found it at this Portuguese site http://saisdeprata-e-pixels.blogspot.co ... chive.html

CORRECTION!

It is not Robert Frank - it is a Bruce Davidson photo.
Large version, complete uncropped:

Believe the photo is called "USA. New York City. 1959. Brooklyn Gang." from the collection called "Brooklyn Gang" which can be found here:

In "No Direction Home" the photo is used while is listening the Jack Kerouac's poem 228 Chorus, from Mexico City Blues:

Praised be man, he is existing in milk
and living in lillies-
And his violin music takes place in milk
and creamy emptiness-
Praised be the unfolded inside petal
flesh of tend'rest thought-
(petrels on the follying
wave-valleys idly
sing themselves asleep)-
Praised be delusion, the ripple-
Praised be the Holy Ocean of Eternity-
Praised be I, writing, dead already &
dead again-
Dipped in ancid inkl
the flamd
of T i m
the Anglo Oglo Saxon Maneuvers
Of Old Poet-o's-
Praised be wood, it is milk-
Praised be Honey at the Source-
Praised be the embrace of soft sleep
-the valor of angels in valleys
of hell on earth below-
Praised be the Non ending-
Praised be the lights of earth-man-
Praised be the watchers-
Praised be my fellow man
For dwelling in milk


228th Chorus, from Mexico City Blues,
by Jack Kerouac

Very exciting!

I just got this graphic off the Pepsico website. Looks like there will also be a promotional TV spot.

No not really. The only person it could matter to gets a kick out of it. That song is meant as a compliment anyhow."

This seems to answer the question of Bob's marital status that seems to come up every now and then.


:shock:

Sounds like Bob either admits to being married these days or is suggesting that song was specifically written about one of his ex-wives.


or an in law could be a sister in law, daughter in law or son in law or whatever in law.... it could be written for someone of his immediate family as the subject

That should be red, not pink. Pepsi's colours are red, white and blue. Get it straight - don't diss da fizz, kid.

No kidding! As are pretty much anything in the Magnum Collection.

Davidson is great - you should check out Robert Frank's stuff as well though.

Good day to be a photography junkie :D
