Photographer Al Satterwhite spent an obscene amount of time in 1974 shooting Hunter S Thompson for Playboy in Cozumel, a small Caribbean island off the coast of Yucatan, Mexico.

To share the story of that trip, as well as numerous never-before-seen shots of the iconic writer, he plans to publish The Cozumel Diary. A Kickstarter appeal is now up for a print run of a thousand copies. Funny how Hunter S Thompson just seems to be sitting around in every other photo we see here.
