ABOUT THIS ART:

"This photo was taken at a very famous club in Santa Cruz called The Catalyst on July 15th, 1978. They had all kinds of huge people that have played at that venue. I’ve seen Peter Tosh and just about every California group you can think of at the Catalyst over the years. They have a lot of psychedelic art on the walls. So I saw that mandala and I shot Mary’s face over it. I think it worked pretty well. We were doing a lot of acid that summer. I was living in Big Sur and novelizing two screen plays for a couple of Hollywood screenwriters. We went there for lunch one afternoon, it was a restaurant and a club. 


Both images were shot one immediately after the other. You have to keep that first image in the camera and find something to overlay on it. In those days it was very different from doing it digitally. This was in the old days with film, where you just had to remember where the different elements of the picture were and hope that you line things up properly on the second image so you could still see the first.  I was trying to achieve an acidic/psychedelic effect in the photographs to mimic what I was seeing in my psychedelic acid hallucinations." - Roger Steffens
