When I first moved into Manhattan from the Bronx, I approached Central Park with the eyes of a tourist. It was all new to me. I remember walking down Poet’s Walk for the first time (without camera) and saying, I have to return on the right day and drag out the large format camera.
This lead to decades of Central Park photos.
Included: Literary Walk (the Mall), The Great Lawn, and most of the famous Central Park landmarks. The park has always been a refuge from the pace of Manhattan.
Most of these photographs are from black and white film; but I also experimented with impressionist color infrared work later on in the “digital age.”
