Ruben Israel, street preacher

1994 Canal Street

1999 Canal Street

1998 Canal Street


1996 Canal Street

1995 Canal Street

I started photographing Mardi Gras in 1990, and in 1994 I made a portrait of a man carrying a banner and street preaching. We talked a bit, and I asked if I might make his portrait, he agreed and I sent him a copy. His name is Ruben Israel, from Southern California and he is a self proclaimed Street Preacher. Since 1994 I have made his portrait at Mardi Gras. This month finds me scanning old negative files before the film faded too seriously to allow good scans, and I cam across some of Rubens portraits.

While on a trip to Florida to attend the SE SPE conference, Susan, Aimee and I took an afternoon and drive to the gulf coast, Bald Point State Beach/Park. These are some of the images I made there and will be part of my Beach Landscape series.

My first digital photographs

Earliest Digital photograph that I could find, November 10, 2000. For any of your future curators out there, this was the start of my digital photography. Shot with a Kodak DC4800 3.1 mega pixels. According to the file # it's number 125, so there must have been 124 images previous to this one, but they are now lost to the ages. For that matter, I am pretty sure I do not have my first roll of film saved either.

Midtown, New York City, this photo was actually published in a text book about digital photography.

New in-camera work

For the past few years I have been working on a series of in camera multiple exposures, done digitally. I am well aware that all this can be done in Photoshop, but there is a serendipity to what happens when this is done in camera. I'm being moved along with this project by a possible show this spring of this work. The weather is not cooperating with this new work and I am not sure how much longer I can ask people to model outdoors.

A New Blog!

Like there are not enough photo blogs already. I thought my self portrait blog might be enough, but the self portrait project, now two years old, has a life of its own. I want this new blog to be more about the work I am currently producing and offer my friends a chance to comment on it.
