As some folks have noted in reblogs, yes, the negative for this was flipped, in this case, by the photographer himself. This was very common at the time, making it easier for photos from a series to be sold to more than one publication. Magazine art directors often did (and still do) this too, to provide more flexibility in how text and graphic elements are laid out. I thought about flipping it, and have indeed reoriented or otherwise edited other photos before posting them, but in this case, I’ve enjoyed the photo as Ken first released it for so long that making it “right” now looks “wrong” to me!
