Michael Simmons: Van Dyke Parks Keeps On Cyclin'
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
In 1967-68 I was office boy at a short-lived magazine that my father published called Cheetah. Of Bar Mitzvah age, I considered myself a man, one who had thoroughly absorbed all tributaries of what is now called the counterculture, especially its music simply called ROCK, having dispensed with its appendage of "...and roll." In the wake of the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper and Bob Dylan, rock music was Gabriel's electric horn for me and my young hirsute comrades, heralding the emergence of the holy in all God's chillun, and love and peace and general groovyosity. Cheetah had a two-fold mandate: 1) to present a well-writ and designed, slick-papered mag for hippies and 2) to turn a profit. It usually succeeded in the former, but completely failed at the latter. Before its demise, some of the best journalistic minds of the '60s generation contributed to Cheetah, including Paul Krassner, Ed Sanders, Doon Arbus, Richard Goldstein, Robert Christgau, Ellen Willis - even Tom Wolfe.

ART REVIEW; Arbus's Full Frontal Oddity
NYTimes - almost 12 years
THE revolutionary photographer Diane Arbus, who is the subject of a stirring retrospective now at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan, is one of those artists whose work is inextricably linked to New York City. But Arbus (1923-1971) also photographed a great deal in New Jersey. And that fact is one of the lesser revelations of this

A TEENAGER in a straw boater, with big apricot-shaped ears, thin lips and matching bow tie, gazes out from the photograph, whose date is 1967. He is standing beside, and perhaps he's holding (his hands are out of the frame, so it's hard to tell) an American flag. He wears a bowtie-shaped flag pin, too, with buttons affixed on each lapel. ''Bomb

There's a theological bent to this season's books of and about photographs, as some of the titles reviewed below attest: ''Revelation'' (singular), ''Revelations'' (plural), ''The Passions,'' ''The Devil's Playground.'' But big biblical themes like temptation, renunciation, redemption and grace can also be found in unexpected places, like ''One Big

Arbus Reconsidered
NYTimes - over 13 years
'Giving a camera to Diane Arbus is like giving a hand grenade to a baby,'' Norman Mailer said after seeing how she had captured him, leaning back in a velvet armchair with his legs splayed cockily. The quip was funny, but a little off base. A camera for Arbus was like a latchkey. With one around her neck, she could open almost any door. Fearless,

Books in Brief: Nonfiction; Realer Than Themselves
NYTimes - about 17 years
Richard Avedon's portraits have such iconic power that they are interchangeable with their subjects -- like that of Andy Warhol displaying the Frankenstein tracks of his abdominal scars after his shooting in 1968 or the solarized, acid-laced images of the Beatles. Half of the photographs in the 30-year retrospective volume THE SIXTIES, by Richard

IN years past, the publication of a book devoted to a major photographer was a singular event, often a cause for rejoicing. Now these events seem to come in threes, one of them invariably being a biography, the latest step on the path to enshrining photographers within the pantheon of 20th-century art. This season the honors go to Walker Evans

Paradoxes abound in UNTITLED (Aperture, $50), the third volume of Diane Arbus's photographs and the only one devoted to a single subject -- the mentally retarded. Most of these pictures have never been exhibited or published before. Arbus began taking them in 1969 and continued until her suicide in 1972. Of this work she once wrote: "They are

For every thing there is a season, and this season's thing in photography books is fashion. Among many others, the fashion photographers Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Horst P. Horst, Irving Penn and Francesco Scavullo are featured in publications ranging from the unassuming (Mrs. Dahl-Wolfe) to the sumptuously overblown (Mr. Scavullo). This isn't to say that
