World Trade Center / Checker Cab 1987 (New Scan)

checker-taxiWhen I made this picture, my only impetus was to add another Checker cab to my collection, but now the picture makes me glad I took it, but very sad looking at it…

“Occupy Wall Street” 2011

I’m so far behind on my developing film, it really isn’t funny. The broken wrist set me back a few months, and I usually avoid the darkroom during the summer for obvious reasons. I don’t remember taking this picture, but I’m very happy I did. Something made me push the button, and I doubt it was her clenched fist. I think this one depicts the tension felt between the Police and the People fairly well, without actually capturing any of the violence which ensued…

Mosque 1989

I remember when this rather large mosque was being built and wonder how the upper east side would have reacted if this was after 9/11….Would it exist or would the outcry have been enough to make them build it elsewhere?

The Rat Approaches 2001

I was at an exhibit in Chelsea during the summer of 2001 when I took this picture. Gunter Grass the famous German writer is also a pretty decent artist. This drawing of a giant rat approaching a city was the one I found most interesting and I decided to back up and include the World Trade Center. Now I find the picture more disturbing for obvious reasons…
