91st Street Subway Station 2015

I was surprised that this picture came out so well. Traveling fairly fast on an express train, and shooting through a dirty window, this really ain’t as bad as my grammar…

“When the Last Frame Slips” 1986

My first camera was the affordable AE-1 Canon and when I would try and advance past the 37th frame, I’d only get a couple of sprocket’s worth of film.

Harlem 1985

Harlem 1985
