Amsterdam Ave. 1969

This is just a frame from an 8mm film I shot with a friend when I was a kid, but it is like looking into a lost world. The upper west side was. Not worth belaboring the obvious…

“The Little Building that Could” 1986

I really liked that this little building somehow survived the developers, who had attached their sign with a picture of a 34 story tower, proclaiming “1964 Fall Occupancy”. Twenty two years later the little greasy spoon was still serving affordable meals just one block south of Times sq.

Under the Boardwalk 1989

Everybody has some thing they wished they took more pictures of. Having shot a lot at Coney Island, the fact that I only took two pictures below the boardwalk really annoys me. I had no way of knowing they’d fill it up with sand in 1991, but such is life…

“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.
