Photographer Roger Steffens has taken iconic shots of rock and roll legends. But it's his collection of personal snapshots of life in the 1970s - including some psychedelic double exposures - that is now attracting attention.

The work was mostly forgotten until his children digitised the slides and started posting them on Instagram. Now the @thefamilyacid Instagram feed has over 15,000 followers and the Steffens family has a new book, The Family Acid.

Steffens admits that psychedelic drugs changed his life. His children say that despite their unconventional upbringing, they are a happy, close-knit family.

Roger and his children spoke to the BBC from Roger's home outside Los Angeles.
