New York Photo Blog

PHOTO BLOG PHOTOGRAPHER

This New York photo blog began before the word BLOG was coined.  At least that’s how I remember it.  The year was 1999. I called it an online journal and it was inspired by Edward Weston’s daybooks. There were a number of us photogs who took early to the web; and found that by keeping a photo journal (as we called them) we could connect with our collectors and customers.

Of course before blogs, journals were usually written in private and maybe published when finished.  The real-time blog is different.  You are practically reading this as soon as I post it.

I discovered that it’s one thing to  write your memoirs in private, and another to splash them all over in public in realtime.

  I still need the cane to get up the two flights of stairs to my apartment, and for getting up and down.  This all goes back to a bad Crohn's flareup a few months ago.  Crohn's can effect your joints, and in my case I...

We lived in a roach infested apartment on University Avenue, near what we called "The Projects" as if there were only on projects.  I was about ten years old.  Maybe younger.  And was home in the afternoon (probably playing at being sick) when the doorbell...

Had an assignment to get the marquee of the Apollo Monday night.  It was the first little thing I took on since I got sick with the Colitis/Crohn's syndrome again, maybe a year ago.  I planned it pretty carefully since my legs are still weak,...

The city is always filled with little mysteries.  Just about anywhere you look, you can find wonderful and sometimes odd puzzles. At first this looks like a company or guy named Rick went around the city placing his sticker brand on emergency plugs. And who's seat is...

This picture became more interesting to me when I noticed the woman had a plant she was holding, the kiss was the main reason, and then the yawn.  The baby is giving me the best look.  I'm sure I was on my way to do...

Pictures sometimes take on a new context - as the external world changes around them. In fact, what were once snapshots, given enough time, become archival material. Clues to our past. Well, anyway, one the earliest black and white photo books I can remember was The...

I don't remember anything about the movie reflections in a golden eye, but dimly, figures come forth.  Liz Taylor playing a not very nice role. And Marlon Brando playing some sort of perverted soldier.  It was a well received movie when it came out...
