I ashamedly put in an order for Early Color when I heard. It's something I should have done long ago

really keen to see all of those books. i was dithering over interlibrary loaning his B&W volume a couple of days ago, seeing afresh the pic i posted above & remembering its existence. i am totally sad that i will never get to go catsit for him in his beautiful apartment now but otherwise i think it's a kind of nice opportunity just to think of him, that he got the flush of recognition of the past few years & that those images are part of our vocabulary, now - hewn in extinct tones, rich with this otherworldly step, some stylist from nowhere. he was one of the best i think.

oh his B&W work always looked unreal - this strain ^^ mostly but also a lot of kinda uncharacteristic, personal work, portraiture &c, not a million miles away from early/less goth emmet gowin
