From 2008 classic figure study. The form flows through the negative space creating the emotion. The figure image is simplicity and grace. “What comes next?” as I traverse through years of negatives that will soon become prints is it all I have to say?

Staten Island Ferry.Circa 1972, early looks at negative space and triangles.
A Life in Photographic Art my second book.
Although not consciously understanding seeing of negative space my mind already was seeing it. Even most of my earliest images were un cropped or I had a lot of trouble deciding a little off the top or a little off the bottom. Also I was never one to steal a persons image. This women looked at me and my camera, I pointed it at her from shoulder level she nodded an approval, depress the shutter a moment is created. The triangles all lead to the strong yet ambiguous eyes. Tri X 400 at 400 Nikon F 1971 105mm 2.5 lens f-8 1/125 somethings the mind remembers. So for a few or more posts as I file negs from 35 years of following the rectangle observing and commenting I’ll post a little history of my life in photographic art. I hope this will be my second book want a copy?
