I’ve spent the morning dipping in and out of the books of original 60s and 70s Hollywood wild child, Eve Babitz – so fiercely honest and completely unapologetic. Eve’s Hollywood and Slow Days, Fast Company.
The photo below is a twenty-year-old Eve, naked and playing chess with Marcel Duchamp. It says a great deal about the extent of her mischief making. It was taken as an act of revenge against her married lover, who hadn’t invited her to Duchamp’s retrospective at the museum, since his wife was attending. That’s one way to do it! Love, Susie x
