Documentary Photographer

Homage to the
New York Photo League

The first week of 2013 I was fortunate to travel to San Francisco to see the “Radical Camera” at the Contemporary Jewish Museum, an exhibit of photos and artifacts of the New York Photo League. It was like visiting the “Holy Grail” of documentary photography. In homage to that cohort of gifted photographers who used their talent for personal expression and social change, I decided create images throughout the weekend in black and white, to chronicle my noticings of light, geometry, and interaction.

This portfolio is a chronological photo journal of my trip, from home in Salem to San Francisco, and back again. I was not permitted to take pictures of the “Radical Camera” exhibit, so here’s the link to the fantastic exhibit book
