Fire Island, New York
There are days when I feel like a photographic chameleon. One second I am working on or teaching iPhone imagery and the next I am into landscape with a high res digital camera. But the images that always touch me the most are personal and have historical value on several levels. Not due to the fact that I know or am related to the participants, but because they relate to periods in my life - whatever the underlying reason may be.

Today's image is from the series  'Childhood and other Neighborhoods' which I have been working on for several years. I am starting to feel the series is close to coming out of the darkness.

The image was captured using a Pentax 67 and Tri-X 400 film - scanned into the digital world using a Hasselblad/Imacon scanner, circa 1994.


  1. supercool....i love it. i like the crop or your composition of the shot. that you don't see her face. that she is an element but what the boy is thinking, saying or doing is the primary focus....leaves you wanting to know all good photos do....

  2. thanks D...I have been working on this for several years - trying to get it done by October when I have a show in Toledo...

  3. Harry, This is very touching. Can't wait to see your series. Always wonderful to see life through others eyes.
