Kane photographed Morrison in the closet of his room at L.A.’s Chateau Marmont hotel. He had an electrician move the television in to the closet, and asked Morrison to kneel behind it and change channels, capturing many different broadcasts and Morrison’s moods and reactions. Finally choosing the blond starlet as his principle image, other interesting frames include Morrison with President Johnson, The Newlywed Game, and the ‘The End’ logo of a paramount picture. As Kane later remembered: “A light went on in my hotel closet when I opened the door. It produced a weird shadow. It was a lifeless chamber. I noticed the TV and instinctively moved it into the closet. I had visions of Jim Morrison kneeling behind it with the tube suggesting an x-ray image of his nerve center – his thoughts.”
