BRUCE CONNER / PHYSICAL SERVICES

BRUCE CONNER / PHYSICAL SERVICES
San Francisco 1965

Bruce Conner is posing in front of his film exhibition poster at Haselwood's apartment. Dennis Hopper shot the poster photograph. Conner went into the gym 'Bruce Conner's Physical Services' and demanded they take down their sign because he was the real Bruce Conner. They refused, so Conner returned with the women witnesses shown on the poster to prove he was the real Bruce Conner. They still refused to remove their sign, so he returned again and presented hundreds of buttons to the owner of the gym that read "I am not Bruce Conner". Bruce was wearing the only button that read "I am Bruce Conner".

While waiting for McClure to leave his place, Bruce Conner and I played around with my parent's car. He posed all over the old Rolls-Royce, but I like his flying lady hood ornament pose the best.

BRUCE CONNER, ONE LONE CLONE
San Francisco 1965-98

Bruce Conner is the most creative artist I have met to date. High energy, great ideas and flawless technique, he is one lone clone. Because of his underground film making and his mandalas I shot this photograph of Conner through a home-made teleidoscope.
