Grace Slick, Jefferson Airplane, Central Park, NY, 1976
Jefferson Airplane were playing Central Park. After the show the record company threw a party at the Essex House Hotel. The party was atop the hotel in an outdoor restaurant which overlooked where the show was just held. A few of us went over to the party to shoot some pictures of the first arriving people. Grace walked in and was doing some posing for a few of the AP photographers, when I noticed that there was something wrong on in her eye. As she got closer I noticed that she had a star in her eye. A contact lens in the shape of a star. I said to her 'nice eye job.' At that point, she mugged the camera and in that instant, I snapped this photo. I asked her, 'why not both eyes?' She said that she did have to see! The photo was shot with a wide angle lens which gave it a distortion that was perfect for the overall effect. -- Richard E. AaronTri-X 400ASA 1/60sec. f/8 24mm.
