Donna Loren: Mover and Shaker in the Center of a Mid-Sixties Pop Maelstrom
Donna Loren: Mover and Shaker in the Center of a Mid-Sixties Pop Maelstrom is the photographic retrospective of a 1960s "It Girl." Featuring narrative by Loren herself and the help of longtime Los Angeles archivist Domenic Priore, Donna Loren looks at her work on television's Shindig! and Dick Clark's Caravan of Stars tour (including images of The Supremes, James Brown, Jerry Lee Lewis and more), plus behind-the-scenes on the sets of Batman, The Monkees and all the American International beach movies. At a time when The Beach Boys and Beach Blanket Bingo were on top, Donna Loren was the iconic California Girl.
"Wherever and whenever I performed, my manager/dad was there to document the places and the people with whom I worked. Whether behind the scenes doing Dr Pepper commercials and events, appearances on Shindig, Batman or The Monkees, he was there to capture the moments. Rare Bird Books liked the idea of doing a 'photographic journal' using these pictures, with captions written by me. My co-author, Domenic Priore, helped me make it all happen. He has included me in several of his pop culture books, so it was natural to partner up with him. Most of the photos in this book are from my private collection with a few exceptions such as Dr Pepper calendars and concert posters. These are candid and real depictions of what my life was like in another space and time, one that so many of us cherish."
