The story behind the cover photos of "Hot Rats"

Christine Frka, pictured in this photo, was quiet and playful.

I wanted a mix of comedy and balls. I wanted to say something about the emergence of female power. Christine was a Tim Burton character mixed with a silent film star. The photos from the shoot that day were so good. The combo of me and Christine really worked.

When next I saw Frank Zappa, he immediately wanted to license the photo for an album he was doing called "Hot Rats," which I agreed to. Little did l know it would enter the iconography as it did.

A print will be released in conjunction with "Andee Eye," and will be in the book as well.
