The light in Cherry and Hawk’s second floor bedroom was wonderful. I set up the tripod and camera while Cherry was nursing and made this photo just after baby Moses fell asleep and popped off of Cherry’s breast—momma’s milk dripping down his chin.
“We were all searching for something. I came from Miami, Florida. A lot of the people came from California, New York, Canada and Europe. I was only 17, hitchhiked across the country, flew to Kauai and ended up at Taylor Camp. I was there for three weeks. It rained every day. I was ready to leave, walked out on the beach and met Hawk.
“It was a great experimental living situation. There were no rules. There was nothing you signed when you came into camp. It all just kind of happened naturally. There was a co-op. There was church. There would be wild parties. There would be babies born. It was just kind of all going on and we were all living with 6-mil plastic walls between us.” — Cherry Hamilton
