Richard and Mimi Fariña were only together four years. Richard died in a motorcycle accident at the age of 29. When I read the David Hadju book, Positively 4th Street a few years ago, the death of Richard Farina haunted me for weeks. As it turned out, when I read of his death in the book, it was April 30th and the 39th anniversary of his passing and what would have been Mimi's 60th birthday. Talented and beautiful people, long gone from this earth but forever together in one of my favorite photographs by John Byrne Cooke. I like everything about this photo.
