Steven Arnold (1943-1994), the larger than life photographer and filmmaker, took this 1985 photograph of his larger than life friend Rachel Rosenthal (1926-2015.) I spotted it when Jason Jenn wrote about it on the Torrance Art Museum’s online program Hobson’s Choice.http://www.torranceartmuseum.com/staffpicks .
Coincidentally, Christopher Knight had just sent me a link to Heavenly Bodies, a new documentary Steven Arnold, that was all too briefly on vimeo. Produced by Joan Quinn, it is a worthy effort with nods to Salvador Dali, Holly Woodlawn, Ed Moses and Tony Duquette, for goodness sakes.https://vimeo.com/user67679385
Back to my files I went, this time to 1984 and my profile of Arnold from the Herald Examiner where Christopher and I worked at the same time.http://hunterdrohojowska-philp.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Steven_Arnold_profile_LA_Herald_Examiner.pdf
