At this point one would have to be at almost 50 years old to remember what grafitti was like in 1970. I do recall monitoring the “First Wave” tags, and Stitch-1 with his pal Snake-1 killed the Broadway line and much more…Tags are very hard for some people to appreciate and if you weren’t part of the scene, chances are you thought they were just chicken scratch!

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.
