Betsy Karel began to photograph Times Square in 2014 and has over the last several years amassed a portfolio of black and white photographs exploring the chaotic five blocks that make up one of the most interesting and unique parts of the world. Every photographer that I know that has spent time in Times Square has confessed that they would like to spend time documenting the turbulent street theater.

My good friend, and brilliant graphic designer, Steven Jurgensmeyer, introduced me to the work of Daniel Efram. You will see that they are black and white, phantasmagorical images – my personal passion.
Images are from Dan’s soon to be published book titled “Curiosities”.
I recently met and became acquainted with Teresa Meier’s work at a local fine art photography portfolio review event. I was impressed by her personal vision as well as the meticulous attention to detail she incorporates in her images.
My Very Good Friend - And One Of The Most Talented People I Have Ever Met - CARY WOLINSKY Has An Exhibition Opening Soon In Boston. I Asked Cary To Forward Me A Number Of The Images That Will Be Included In The Exhibition As Well As A Few Words About Each One.
My Friend Gus And I Were Both Shooting At BOSTON BOXING & FITNESS In Brighton Massachusetts One Day Early This Year. My Job Was To Corral As Many Of The Boxers As I Could To Stand In Front Of His Lens. He Captured The Boxers In The Middle Of A Very Hard Workout, Sweaty, Fatigued, And Unpretentious.
Operation Doorstep was a Civil Defense test carried out in conjunction with the much larger March 17, 1953, 16-kiloton ANNIE test conducted at the Nevada Test Site, part of Operation Upshot-Knothole.
My good friend for many, many years, Brian Alterio, has always taken terrific photographs. I asked him to send me a few and he responded with these five images taken years ago in England.
Harry John Kerker forwarded a couple of his Burning Man photographs to me. I applaud the approach he took of combining black and white and color. It adds a slightly surreal quality to a very surreal event.
Sometimes (very rarely in my case) you see work that stops you in your tracks. That is exactly what happened when I first saw Rick Ashley’s work he creates with his brother-in-law.
I am a huge fan of Danny Lyon’s photography. In my collection, I have four original prints, including one from Conversations with the Dead – a book that changed my perception of the nature of documentary photography. Recently, I ran across these images he shot in the 1970s for Documerica.
