Barry and I met in my manager’s office. Barry was either courting or was already married to Mary Travers from Peter, Paul & Mary. I knew Mary too, and she might have introduced him to me at an earlier date, but I don’t remember.
We became traveling partners. Barry was on some tours of mine and we also drove a car across the country once.
Yeah. I liked Barry’s photos a lot. They reminded me of Robert Frank’s photos... Just in their stark atmosphere. Obviously the subject matter. I liked the angles Barry used in the pictures… the shadows and light, that sort of thing.
But what about me? Well I would have to refer to the academicians too. If they are poems, or if they are not poems… does it really matter? And who would it matter to?
First of all I don’t think what I had written would have been written without seeing the photographs…and secondly…well I don’t know if there is a secondly.
Well obviously I thought a great deal of the pictures. I think Barry was an incredibly great photographer as I still do to this present day.
