During the 1980s I had the honor of working for some of the 20th Century's great photographers. Penn, Horst, Avedon, Mapplethorpe and Arnold Newman amongst others. I have a genuine appreciation for their work and that of their contemporaries. Growing up in New York with a budding interest in photography I was taken with the often romantic gum and platinum prints of the Photo-Secessionists. It was not until some years later, approaching the tender age of forty that I really began to appreciate the work of 19th Century photographers. I found my passion in wetplate collodion photography.
