A memoir in photographs and words that reveals the intimacy and vibrancy of how artists living together can evolve and vibrate ideas into the world. Yet we now live in a time when the weight and prowess of real estate barons overpass proper toxic code laws and drive long time tenants like myself from my friends and co –creators. The Chelsea Hotel is on its 4th partner, yet my publisher Schiffer books backs me, through opening date now postponed to 2018. Will the ethos and ghosts bring creativity to the new breed with iPhones and privy, and how will the community evolve. 55 are left. I am always a friend of the Chelsea Hotel and my photographs are to hang in lobby.
