Four Decades Street Photography

Ilove all kinds of photography; it is both my profession and my hobby.   Street photography has to be at the top of my list though.  I was taking street pix before I even knew that I was. After graduating high school I worked in NYC and went to Pratt at night. Walking around the city with a camera felt as natural as can be. I eventually got a decent camera, a 35mm Miranda F slr, and my skills as a photographer improved. The die was cast. Except for a ten-year period during which I was developing my orchid photography skills, I have always taken street pix. Some photographers get a rush from capturing a beautiful sunset or rare wildlife...for me the moment of capturing a perfect expression or juxtaposition of people against their surroundings can't be beat. I like the quirkiness of our world and being able to record it in, as Cartier-Bresson said, a decisive moment. A split second seen as only I see it, that with my camera I can preserve for eternity.  These photographs are totally unique. 

The past few years of advancing technology have brought changes to the craft. I still maintain film cameras although it has been a couple years since I have used them. I also have my darkroom equipment and promise myself an extended silver gelatin printing session to complete the archive of earlier work. I am presently using a Samsung EX2F and am extremely pleased with its utility for doing street photography. It may very well be the camera I wished for thirthy five years ago.

There are three galleries of work.

I am not offering online sales of these photographs at this time,  but I do have silver gelatin prints of some of the  earlier work and can make inkjet prints of the newer digital work. So if there is something that you are interested in, please write for sizes and price.
