My then partner Mark was a diver preparing for the Gay Games. I shot him extensively while he trained on a trampoline. I was working on a show of life-sized drawings that included aerial figures so the photos were intended as study material. This photo leapt out and became the back cover for EXTRAORDINARY FRIENDS.  When the book came out, Rizzoli’s in Beverly Hills put a stack of the book in its window with a life sized print of this image. I thought this was a significant cultural achievement. Mark was mooning passersby on Wilshire Boulevard and Rodeo that Christmas. Times were changing.
