This is a black and white photograph that shows a man and a woman sitting across from one another in a domestic room. A poster of Bob Dylan is mounted over a large American flag that hangs near the corner of the room at top center in the composition. Book cases line the right-hand wall; a hexagonal rug and table with decorative objects appear in the foreground. The woman at left has long dark hair and wears a sweater with jeans. The man smokes a cigarette at right. He has shoulder length hair, a moustache, and wears a vest over a turtleneck with jeans.

Micaëla Gallery printout:"SANDY AND MIKE AT HOME / Berkeley 1967 / Sandy and Mike were friends of mine who lived in Berkeley. I knew Sandy from Art School. They both were doing ceramics for a living. Sandy danced topless in North Beach, made pottery and beads that Mike made into sculptures and hangings. They were the archetypal hippie couple of the late 1960's."
