EDWARD COLVER ON PHOTOGRAPHING BLACK FLAG’S “DAMAGED” COVER
November 28th, 2012 by Tim

BLACK FLAG – “DAMAGED” COVERS AND ALTERNATE SHOTS | PHOTO: EDWARD COLVER

The “Damaged” cover photographs of Henry, I shot at what was called the Oxford house in Hollywood. I taped the entire backside of the mirror, turned it over and broke it with a hammer, then cleaned it. The “blood” I made with red India ink that I brought with me and stuff I found in the kitchen. After experimenting for a bit I came up with red ink (for color) liquid dishwashing soap (consistency) and powdered instant coffee (for color).

We did some photographs outside with a blue blanket as a background (unused, no mood) and then some inside. The best photographs in my opinion were not used (Henery’s glowing red from my flash) they were deemed too demented (those photos had been “miss placed” for over 20 years).

The back cover photo of just the broken mirror was my idea and I took it at a friend’s house in Los Feliz. I photographed the mirror for the back on Rowena ave. To have it only reflect black, I laid the mirror on a sidewalk at night and photographed it at a slight angle as to not have my camera or I show up in the reflection. Where I shot it was two blocks from the Labianca house scene of the Manson murders. My friend’s aunt that lived a block away found bloody clothes in her alley after the murders, she lived on St. George and at the time of the murders Tex Watson lived on Griffith Park Blvd.

The photograph in the upper left, SST did at one time in black and white. The photograph in the upper right is the outdoor blue blanket photo. The lower left photograph of Henry’s profile was from a single frame I shot during the shoot and never printed until I was working on my book “Blight At The End Of The Funnel”. The photograph in the lower right is the original “Damaged” cover. – Edward Colver (edwardcolver.com)
