A Quote from the Artist:
"Although the major portion of my commercial work is in the area of photo-journalism, I also work in other spheres of interes in my personal phography. By photographing three of four continuing themes at once, I find I can work with a "fresher" eye in each area. For nearly 20 years now I have photographed such diverse thems as the women's movement, Coney Island, The South Bronx, and landscapes."
