Richard Brautigan, San Francisco, 1968

‘Jubilee Hitchhiker: The Life and Times of Richard Brautigan’ is out now at a retailer near you. Baron photographed Brautigan in 1968 and  in ‘The Rolling Stone Years‘ book Baron talks about how he “turned him (Jann Wenner) on to a poet named Richard Brautigan. “Jann, he’s writing this terrific poetry, kind of a hippie poet in a way but not really and I’ve got these great pictures of him.” Eventually Brautigan produced a poem in each issue; for a while he became the Rolling Stone poet laureate.”
