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…

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.
