There Was Always A Place to Crash by Al Kaplan
“Here’s the book that proves what I only remembered; yes, I lived in a tree fort in Provincetown in 1966 and inside is an actual photo of it. The benches, yes those benches, were the nerve center of coolness inProvincetown and bohemian studs and bad girl artists were on every corner. My favorite picture in the book? Beatnik dirty feet in sandals. We all have our twisted memories, don’t we?”
-- John Waters, author and filmmaker
A new hardcover book of photographs from Letter16 Press
Featuring previously unseen images of Provincetown, Massachusetts’ early 1960s bohemian milieu, from future Andy Warhol Factory film star Rene Ricard to the libertine scene unfolding inside gay rights pioneer Prescott Townsend’s legendary treehouse -- all lovingly transferred from Al Kaplan’s original 35mm negatives.
