Post Lot Text
From the series of Penn's portraits of members of San Francisco's counter-cultural scene that were first published in a dedicated feature in Look, January 9 1968. This group was titled 'The Outrageous'. One of the subjects is quoted: 'There's only one thing that really means anything to me and that's the Hell's Angel patch I wear. I can get me anything else - a new bike, a new old lady or money - but I can't get me another patch.... My brothers - that's my whole life. My brothers. It's all I've got.'
