Deep in his grandparents’s attic, Garrett Colton finds a dusty box marked “Evel Knievel slides & film, 1972.” Turns out, his grandfather was good buds with the daredevil and American cult hero and helped coordinate a weekend showcase in Cooperville. In an era where moments are captured and shared almost instantly, it’s quite a novelty to find something that’s been untouched or seen for over 30 years. Colton published the works in Evel Comes to Cooperville, a photo book that truly captures that one weekend in 1972. Find the book through Done To Death Publications.
