Richard Brautigan (1935-84) was one of the most iconic US writers of the 1960s and 70s. But this ascent was matched by an equal and emphatic descent into alcoholism, which eventually led to his suicide at the age of 49. Seeing Richard is a collection of photographs Erik Weber made of Mr. Brautigan during their 15 year friendship. The images are of projects they worked on together, formal portraits made for book covers, and those of a more personal nature. The majority of the images have not been published before.
