“The man committing suicide controls the moment of his death by executing a back flip.”
Jack Goldstein

Jack Goldstein was one of the torch bearers of appropriation.  His success would rise and fall and ultimately he was a giant.  To this day, his suicide causes despair amongst those who looked to him for inspiration.  He is pictured here with his dog, who he said was the brother of Man Ray, William Wegman’s dog, in his loft deep in Brooklyn.
