Chicago 1965

Sometimes I wish I could use my old equipment and work in film again. Pure nostalgia here. I recently found this print in a box of old stuff. I made this photograph in 1965 when I used to roam the streets of Chicago and take street photographs. I could do so safely and would go to the city as a high school kid every weekend. I sold my Lionel Trains to get the money to buy my first good camera. It was (I still have it) a Minolta A5. This photograph is a tribute to my first photography teacher, Edward Sturr. He studied at the Chicago Institute of Design under Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind and had a big influence on me. This is the only image I have from those days.

Please view on white.
