In the summer of 1967, nineteen year old photographer Robert Davidson was commissioned to shoot Frank Zappa in his London hotel room to promote an upcoming concert at the Royal Albert Hall. Zappa let him in upon arrival and proceeded to use the toilet. Robert seized the opportunity and immediately asked through the ajar door if he could take his picture on the throne – Zappa obliged.
This set of images, commonly known as the ‘Zappa Krappa’ pictures almost immediately gained cult status, a sentiment echoed by Zappa himself in 1983, when stating, “I’m probably more famous for sitting on the toilet than for anything else.”
We're pleased to present a series of signed limited edition, silver gelatin prints by Robert. Click on the image for details.
