New York Shadow: Behind the Scenes

My profession was clinical engineering, overseeing the application of medical technology in New York City hospitals. For many years I photograph what I cared about. My education in photography began about age 17, and took place in a small darkroom, a closet under the stairs leading to the basement of the house I grew up in. Now, like most people, I use a digital camera, scanner, and printer–not better, just different. I’ve never been a high-tech enthusiast, although I have studied aspects of Weston’s and Adams’ zone system. My favorite cameras were the Nikkormat 35mm and the inexpensive, early point-and-shoot cameras, like a Brownie with 127 film. And now – simple, point-and-shoot cameras.

New York Shadow: Behind The Scenes, is 8 series of photographs, totaling 173. Each chapter has a short story, and of course. I could be called “an accidental photographer” because I never thought about becoming a professional. Sometimes we become what we least expect.
