Jack Perno's statement about JOHN VAN HAMERSVELD'S PORTAL:
JVH is an American artist and illustrator who has designed over 300 record albums, including Magical Mystery Tour, and Exile on Main Street, as well as posters for Cream and many other iconic images of psychedelia during the 60’s and beyond. He and his wife Alida were visiting me during one of their tours around the country and I asked him if I might shoot a portrait of the visionary artist. He agreed and we made some very impromptu Portal images of him. Fortunately, I had some pre-exposed Portals on hand and we were able to obtain some wonderful images of him during their visit. He’s a great artist and they are both fabulous people. I’ll always be grateful to them for their generosity of spirit.
Jack Perno's statement about THE PORTAL SERIES:
A gateway from one place to another, a world, a time , or to an expanded awareness.
Each image is a story or narrative, which susceptible to multiple interpretation, encouraging the viewer to derive their own conclusion and personal meaning.
