Recently I was told by a very knowledgeable fellow that photography was dead, and that we had entered the post photography era, or something to that effect. Well maybe the fact that everyone has a camera and is photographing every single person on this planet, could have devalued the art slightly.
I’m not an expert on the business end, and I may be the worst business person on earth, but there has been a big change in actual prints and how they are sold. An Edward Weston pepper will still get furious bidding, but many other living photographers (Like myself) are finding it harder to sell even our best images….
Bla bla bla. I know this is old news.

This was a perfect example of how bad things were in New York during the ’80s. Sutton Place is one of the most prestigious addresses in the city and the canopy was like this for months. Even the high rents these “poor” folks paid couldn’t keep their building in tip top shape.

I think I photographed these benches as they were the perfect symbol of New York’s decline in the 1980’s. The parks were so unsafe that you might have been better off staying home, but in this case if you were willing to risk it, you couldn’t even find a place to read your paper…

I love old signs. The Cross Bronx Expressway has had traffic problems for as long as I can recall. This sign may have predated the “parking lot” which it became, but I guess without it, things would even be worse…

When I was in Junior High, all I thought about was ways to get into subway tunnels and make mayhem. My kid’s no fool, at least not yet. She’s sporting a 98.5% average! Yes, the lil’ one’s on the “High Honor Roll” and I’m glad she’s serious, and not following in my footsteps!
