Richard Pryor: Live On The Sunset Strip, 2018
Aaron Krach, Edition of 40
Risograph printing, 5.5 x 8.5″, 16 pages
Still shocking more than 35 years later, Pryor’s concert film “Live on The Sunset Strip” is an hour-and-22 minutes of gut-punching-laughs and heartbreaking honesty. This riso-printed book contains just one sequence from the film, but it is a pivotal one. Pryor drops his bluster and takes the audience back with him to Africa where he recently visited and had a revelation. On screen it unfolds in a few short minutes. Here, the text is laid-out verbatim in gold on matte black pages.
