  • Contrast
    Image taken at the MOMA.  There's an area on the second level that is separated from the rest of the museum by a red plastic barrier. Through it one can see the first floor - bodies in chaos.  On the second floor the bodies appear to be relatively ordered.

  • Columbus Park - panoramic
    This panoramic view of Columbus Park in Chinatown was printed as three separate pictures, hung close together.  The size of the printing allows the viewer to feel close to the scene.  In the back of the middle section one can see a group of people evacuated from a Federal building in response to the earthquake that was felt only slightly in New York, but caused significant damage in DC.

  • Street Corner
    The attraction to me was the almost abstract flow of color.  The Victoria's Secret model looks down on the crowd.  Only after printing this picture several times did I notice that the woman in the center appears to be loosing her pants.

  • August in Bryant Park
    I wasn't able to figure out this person - all bundled up on a bright August day.  I'm assuming that the person is female.  She's not likely to be homeless, based on her boots.  The fellow in the background on the right is dressed for August. This picture remains a mystery.

  • Christopher Park
    This sculpture by George Segal (1924–2000) honors the gay rights movement and commemorates the events at the Stonewall Inn opposite this park that gave rise to the movement. The Stonewall inn catered to the gay community of Greenwich Village.  "In the early hours of June 28, 1969, police raided the Stonewall Inn and a melee ensued in which 13 people were arrested. Word of the raid and the resistance to it soon spread, and the next day hundreds gathered to protest the crackdown and advocate the legalization of gay bars."  Lena Lett, the leader of the drag group of my previous show, told me that it wasn't actually the gay community, but specifically the drag community who initiated the protests.  At that time in NYC, cross dressing was a crime that could lead to arrest.  Weegee,, the famous tabloid photographer, took a number of pictures of these arrests.

  • Hand Bike
    I met this guy in Chelsea.  He's actually not as fierce as he looks.  I was fascinated by his hand bike; and he explained that it was an effective form of transportation, that he used it throughout NY, even crossing bridges.

  • Cinema Still
    I took this picture while waiting for a bus on 34th Steet.  I call it 'Cinema Still' because it looks like a scene from a French genre movie.  Every time I look at it, I'm expecting the action to continue.  Several people have said that the man looks like a well known actor, but could cold not place him.  Let me know if you have any idea who he is.

  • Getting Around
    I encountered this group crossing an intersection on 6th Ave. Diversity in who they were, but sameness in their disability, they had come together to help each other navigate the city.

    A lovely wine and cheese cafe at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I was sitting at a table next to this woman of my era, and watched her writing. i was fascinated by her hands. They has so much character.

  • Bryant Park Newsstand

  • His Audience
    An early Pollock drip painting, owned by the MOMA, had been cleaned and restored to public view. The newspaper made a big announcement of the event; and many people came to see it. I just stood there taking pictures, and eventually assembled them into this collage.

    And how else does one show the artist, but at work. Taken through a mirror at the MOMA. Every one is blurred except me and one other bystander who is interested in what I am doing.

Slow Walking in NY

Slow Walking in NY

I love New York

I walk slowly through the city

I stop I rest

I walk with crutches and braces

If I walk with others, I’m running

When I walk slowly I can breathe the city

So I walk alone

Seemingly invisible

I look I lift my camera

I must record this image

Pictures are my words

Stop and read them
