my old friend and cohort mark michaelson has started up a new website called ‘american mugshot . check it out.(https://www.facebook.com/AmericanMugshot). in his honor, i post this lovely shot of the black dahlia before she got that “smile wider than years.”
…everybody loves celebrities when they’re down. we love to kick them. john gilmore used this image on the cover of his classic on the dahlia murders, “severed.” i love the surrealist connections to the dahlia murders.
