“Der Rote Lastwagon” 2014

*BigDaddys-RED-Truck-der rote lastwagen-2014 copyAmazing how one picture can change everything.
This one almost did just that. I saw a man with a red backpack adjusting his yarmulke, when suddenly “Der Rote Lastwagon” made its fateful left turn. Suddenly the Bechers became seekers and had me over to their house, full of other important Dusseldorfians. Shore swore it was not a bore. Ladd was glad. Bram said Damn! Stuart said screw it, and almost stopped taking pictures. Gilden left the building. Peters said it was sweeter. Turpin started chirping. Blake said it was Jake. Eric became hysteric. Harper said it was sharper. Poor Vivian, almost came back from oblivion. Meyerowitz hired it for Bystander. Even Colberg called to apologize for bashing “street” for so many years…
But then Frank said it stank and it was over.

Yonkers N.Y. 1998

yonkers-ghetto-matt-weberI am rescanning  my images from “The Urban Prisoner” for an I-Pad version. This chore has dragged on and on, as finding over 100 negatives is harder than I thought. A few were not segregated from Gen Pop and have been a real bitch to find…

Las Vegas 1992

Wedding-Chapel-Las-Vegas-Matt-weberThis was the first time I used oil paints on a photograph and I think the results were OK. I had finally reached Vegas on my cross country trip in 1992 and I didn’t have anymore Kodachrome….

NYC 1991

Magic-Johnson-AIDS-matt-weberI remember well how I felt back in ’91 when I heard the news. Magic was as lovable an athlete as any I’d had the privilege of watching. In 1991 the disease was still a virtual death sentence.

I knew an “Ambulance Chaser” once and was not surprised to read that Donald Sterling began his career in that line of work…There’s nothing else I can say that hasn’t already been said about Mr. Tokowitz, except that he is an embarrassment for most human beings and should slither away into his tiny hole, I meant huge mansion and die…
