These photographs were taken by Gloria Stavers during her time as Editor of 16 Magazine. She is credited with being the first female rock and roll journalist and it is rumoured that she often became romantically involved with her interviewees. She had an ongoing relationship with Jim Morrison and the two posed shots of him in this lot were taken at Stavers' apartment in New York.
