I moved to New York City the summer of 1968 when folk music reigned in the Village and flower children stood in line at the Fillmore East to buy tickects for rock concerts by The Doors, Richie Havens, Jefferson Airplane, Jimi Hendrix, and Janis Joplin. My photos have been published in Time Out New York and shown at the Greenwich Art Council's Art to the Avenue exhibit, Greenwich, Connecticut, May 2007.
My photography is a reflection of my love affair with New York City. Favorite photographers are those who captured NYC in the early years of photography: Bernice Abbott, Jacob Riis, Marvin and Morgan Smith in Harlem, Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand, and James Van Der Zee. Edward Steichen said it best: “Photography records the gamut of feelings written on the human face, the beauty of the earth and skies that man has inherited and the wealth and confusion man has created.”
