Summer of ’14

**Coney-Surf-Teen-Beauty-Happy-2014 copyThis might be my favorite summer snap from 2014. I just read that Arthur Leipzig had died and he spent some time shooting Coney Island before I was born. I have  many books from the photographers who worked New York back in the days of the Photo League, and I hope that some of my work contains a tiny essence of their spirit…

 

Good quick read on Mr. Leipzig in the Times.

welfare-hotels-nyc-1980sThere were quite a few welfare hotels around Herald and Greeley Square back in the ’80s and this pictures is one of my better views of what the welfare kids did with their “spare time”
