NYC, 1994

In the summer of 1994, thanks to a generous grant from the Polaroid Corporation, I wandered the streets of New York City with a 4×5 Wista field camera, assisted by my friend Keri Advocat, taking portraits of people with Type 55 film, which rendered both a black-and-white print and negative. The work was almost uniformly beautiful, and now has that warm ache added by passed time. That particular New York is gone, Type 55 film is gone; everything and everyone scattered to their appointed destinies.
