Clyde Keller




There are few images of my adolescence I remember more than the photographs of Bobby Kennedy. I was unaware at the time they were taken by Clyde Keller, but I vividly remember feeling like I was part of the crowd, even though Kennedy was assassinated in 1968 and I probably did not see the photos until much later.
Time passed, and when I began to read Ken Kesey it was Keller's photographs I found again.
So, imagine my delight and surprise to find that Mr. Keller has an etsy shop You may not know his name, but I hope you'll know his photos when you visit.
He's photographed a lot of wonderful musicians, my husband thinks, Frank Zappa, but I'm not sure of that. Perhaps I'll get a chance to ask Mr. Keller one day.

Oh, how neat is that? Thanks for sharing. I keep hearing complaints on the forums of published articles stating that Etsy is for amateur "hobbyists" even though I know that is not true. It's refreshing to see someone of that caliber with a shop!

This is so cool--I have old photos of Bobby Kennedy from old Life magazines that I am framing in a collage sort of thing--oh how I loved him! I was 13 when he was assasinated and thought the world was going to end that summer. First Martin Luther King, Jr., then him, then the debacle of the conventions...what a year that was!

Awesome photos and such memories. I'm sure you will get to chat with him at some point.
