Jerry Garcia Memorial, Piedmont Park, Atlanta, 1995Still Life with Jerry Garcia
A little more than ten years ago, Jerry Garcia died. I made sure to find out where his Atlanta wake was going to be, and set off there with my camera.
At the time a former co-worker of mine was dying in the AIDS hospice by Colony Square. On my last visit I told him that I was going to go to Garcia's wake and shoot pictures, and that I'd bring them by once I got them developed. Sadly, he died early the morning that I returned, and I instead encountered his parents. So, I shared these with them instead, after telling them why I had brought them.
