Michael Gothard at The Beat Hotel, 1960/61 by Harold Chapman

Harold Chapman: "I had run across him by chance and we sat in the Café St-Michel just round the corner from the Beat Hotel, discussing this and that. It is a one-off picture as I always carry my camera with me in case I see something that I wish to photograph, and this was while we were sitting at the table and he was relaxed and thinking and everything fell into place ... I used the photo in my book, The Beat Hotel, and only made one print. That has been lost for nearly thirty years and I have been selling off my archival prints for some time and only found it after an extensive search."

Harold later found three more prints, reproduced here, by his kind permission.
