Smoking in bed, sexual inhibition, canned meats and a planetary eclipse of bellbottoms and zippered skinny jeans — these comprise some of telling marks the 1970s left on our collective psyches. Brad Elterman saw all that and more — at the blushing age of 17, he started capturing the likenesses of Tinseltown’s most influential legends including Bob Dylan, Joan Jett, The Beatles, Jane Fonda, John Travolta and Peter Frampton.
We’re very happy that Brad will be our first Artist in Residence during the first weekend of Desert Gold: Roadside Attraction at Ace Hotel & Swim Club, resurrecting his Beverly Hills party shot skills poolside and late night in the Amigo Room and Commune. We’ll be posting his shots mid-week so you might just see yourself on this page very soon. See the full schedule here and catch some of the last remaining rooms here.
