New York: Mike Sullivan, ca. 1968. Black and white silver gelatin print. 8 x 10 in. Very good. “Jack Smith in No Smoking by M. Sullivan” written in unknown hand on verso. Stamped “Photograph by Mike Sullivan” on verso. Item #6274
Promotional still from Mike Sullivan’s film No Smoking. Sullivan was an obscure filmmaker of the 60s underground scene; Smith appeared in Sullivan’s Frankenstein and No Smoking. This portrait, used as a promotional still for the film, captures Smith in-situ -- posed with the kind of beguiling and delightful little sculpture he assembled from piles of debris.
