© Art Kane, 1968

Art Kane and Jim Morrison hit it off and spent the shoot discussing culture, literature and current events. Kane photographed Morrison for Life Magazine’s ‘New Rock’ photo essay in the closet of his room at L.A.’s Chateau Marmont hotel. He had an electrician move the television in to the closet, and asked Morrison to kneel behind it and change channels. Finally choosing the blond starlet as his principle image.

As Kane later remembered: “A light went on in my hotel closet when I opened the door. It produced a weird shadow. It was a lifeless chamber. I noticed the TV and instinctively moved it into the closet. I had visions of Jim Morrison kneeling behind it with the tube suggesting an x-ray image of his nerve center – his thoughts.”
