Bunker Spreckels was a privileged Los Angeles party boy who was heir to a multimillion–dollar fortune. Passionate about surfing, martial arts, guns, and women, he lived the life of an international jet-setter before succumbing to his excesses at the age of 27. Thirty years later, photographer Art Brewer and writer/photojournalist C. R. Stecyk III trace the rise and fall of Bunker Spreckels. Brewer was a close friend of Spreckels’s and his personal photographer throughout the last decade of his life. Stecyk’s extensive taped interviews with Spreckels, completed just three months before his death, provide a rare first-person perspective on all of the decadent craziness that was his life.
