Original photograph of Richard Brautigan by Erik Weber

Weber, Erik

San Francisco




Original b&w photograph, matted and framed with plexiglass. Image: 21x30.5 cm (8x12"). Framed: 36x46 cm (14x18").

Signed by Weber on the matte beneath the image, and titled, "San Francisco 1970." This photo was taken in Brautigan's San Francisco apartment in 1970, and Brautigan is shown lying in bed and looking directly into the camera. Brautigan trusted Weber and allowed him access that was denied other photographers, thus Weber took many of the most revealing and memorable photos of Brautigan, including the one used for the cover of Trout Fishing in America, and the dust jacket for A Confederate General in Big Sur.
