    The strips offered in the current lot were taken in a photobooth at the bar/restaurant Trader Dick’s, a typical locale of the Memphis beatnik-turnedhippie scene. Done around the time that William Eggleston shot his hypnotically decadent video footage that makes up “Stranded in Canton” featuring his muse Marcia Hare, the strips and the video depict Hare playing and posing to a seemingly unconscious camera. Hare entered the bohemian Memphis scene as a teenager in the mid 1960s. Beautiful and wild, she was central-cast into a world of artists, musicians and eccentrics who broke through the walls of “high” art and racism with love, drugs and rock and roll.
