About the image
A close-up of Hunter S. Thompson  with his iconic cigarette-holder in this photograph taken on the island of Cozumel, Mexico in 1974. The mercurial writer is often credited with the birth of "Gonzo journalism" - a style of writing that places the reporter as part of the story via a first-person narrative. Other characteristics of this style include the use of sarcasm, humor, exaggeration, and profanity, all Thompson trademarks.
