Philm Freax a.k.a. Phil Franks

[philm gif] Although several other photographers contributed to the magazine/s on a more or less regular basis, it was Phil, or as Barney Bubbles often called him, Philm, who lived just a few blocks away from the office on Portobello Road and worked out of the darkroom in Barney's basement in the house next door, cooking up album sleeves for the likes of Hawkwind, was more often than not called upon to cover some event or photograph those personalities who visited Friends/Frendz offices from time to time, as was the case with Uschi Obermaier and Abbie Hoffman and many others... Phil's photos of Country Joe McDonald, Pamela Des Barres/Miller and Edgar Broughton were featured on Friends covers.
