"…he is very famous for the de-hiding of tens of thousands of snakes, bears, and alligators to form the inside of his suit."

Don’t let people treat you like a cigarette, they only use you when they’re bored and step on you when they’re done. Be like drugs, let them die for you.

"IT’S GRATE - BUT IS IT ART?" by HERB SLODOUNIK
I first saw this photo on sfmoma's blog about a year ago, without information about the photographer or when it was taken. Today, after re-spotting it - again without credits - I thought I check the web if I can find any reliable information about this photograph, and voilà, here it is:
It was taken by Herb Slodounik, who worked as staff photographer for The Montana Standard where the photo was published in April 28, 1968. For everyone with a newspapers.com account: you can check it here.
The Montana Standard caption:
"GRATE," BUT IS IT ART? is an example of candid humor where the photographer does not intrude or control the situation. This picture was taken several years ago by staff photographer Herb Slodounik in the San Francisco Museum of Art Shot with a Rolleiflex 2. (+)
 A few years earlier the photo was published on the famous ‘Miscellany’ back page of Life Magazine / Issue July 26, 1963 (I guess it was taken around that time).
In 1988 it was republished in the book LIFE SMILES BACK by Philip B. Kunhardt, Jr., together with 231 more ‘Miscellany’ photos.
LIFE SMILES BACK caption:
"At the San Francisco Museum of Art, an abstract gets close scrutiny.” (+)
  Herb Slodounik died in 2008 after suffering from cancer. You can find more information about his life here.
love this ‘failed’ pano shot (not mine)
Love this pic.
My mom just found it, me and my Grandpa Ososki. I’m probably around 5.

If you don’t want to be deceived, know what it is you’re hungry for.

"Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."

-Marcus Aurelius
