“The Bowery Boys” 1988

bowery-winos-matt-weberDoes my never ending nostalgia also include the last of the Bowery boys? I don’t know, but the ugly glass buildings they have built for the rich on the Bowery will disgust me forever…

“Young Street Photographer Probing Storefront” N.Y.C. 1970

matt-weber-camera-1970-NYCI had a Kodak Instamatic camera when I was 11 years old. It shot square 126 film, and I shot equal amounts of TRI-X and Kodachrome. I was happy to find this snapshot since it is the earliest picture of me with a camera in hand…

old-dog-bronx-matt-weberThis old fellow lived on 149th Street in the Bronx next to the radiator shop that repaired my taxi. He was given food as he was too tired to hunt anymore. Somewhere I have another picture of him sitting upright and I will post it eventually…

strippers=NYC-1986-matt-weberI was surprised to find  I had not posted this picture before today. I always thought the short guy entering “Paradise” looked a little like Danny Devito. I also liked the poor working girl in the white boots…
