Black and White Portrait

I originally shot this portrait in color eleven years ago for Getty Images. I just rediscovered it and was curious to see what it would look like in black and white. Using Topaz software I made the conversion and really am pleased with the results. I just entered this into Lens Culture’s Black and White Awards.

The Deuce and the Bowery. My 70’s NYC photos in Provokr

A story about my NYC 1970’s street photos was recently run in Provokr, an online publication dealing with all aspects of culture. With the release of the HBO show The Deuce, which is centered around Times Square during the early 1970’s, I’ve received many requests about my images. What goes around comes around.

One of my Times Square images  from the mid 1970’s was recently used as a Book Cover for Blue Money by Janet Capron. This novel tells the story of a woman working the street of NYC during this era. A perfect fit.
