I was at an exhibit in Chelsea during the summer of 2001 when I took this picture. Gunter Grass the famous German writer is also a pretty decent artist. This drawing of a giant rat approaching a city was the one I found most interesting and I decided to back up and include the World Trade Center. Now I find the picture more disturbing for obvious reasons…

Photographing NYC for 25 years, six of them while driving a New York City taxi. Trying very hard to capture the city as life unfolds, meaning I never stage any of my photos! Also I am a close confidant of the immortal Dave Beckerman, (quintessential NYC photographer) and owner of the first photography blog in the known universe.
