This is a blog by The Museum of the City of NY about my NYC street photography during the mid 1970’s. Recently 18 of my photos were taken into the permanent collection at the museum. Currently two of them are being shown in a new acquisitions show titled From Teaspoons to Titanic: Recent Acquisitions, on display through December 18th. It’s a wonderful museum, go check it out . . .

Boys and Clown at Rodeo

I shot this in  upstate NY at an outdoor rodeo just before these twins sang the national anthem. Such a weird juxtaposition. This was shot on film and processed in Photoshop and Topaz software. I believe this was shot with a 14mm fisheye lens. I’d check but i sold the lens a few years ago. I really like this one . . .

Democratic Convention 1976

I took these photos at the Democratic National Convention in New York City right outside of Madison Square Garden where the convention was held. At the time it didn’t even occur to me that I was able to shoot this close to the convention with no credentials or hassles from any type of security. Today I wouldn’t be able to get within blocks of a convention. Man, have times changed . . .

Both of these images are in the permanent collection at the Museum of the City of New York.

From the peace and tranquility of my previous blog to the subways of New York City. I guess my vacation is over . . .
