A holiday message

Posted in Opinion, Uncategorized on Wednesday, December 19th, 2012

Little Joe Louis, Philadelphia 1953.

If he is still alive he would be over 60 years old..those dear children of Newtown, Conn. won’t have that chance.
Don’t forget the holiday of 2012. I won’t.
Please do something to make the world better in 2013. george


Another missing negative found.-Alan’s Dog – Prince Edward Island Canada 1977

Posted in Uncategorized on Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

It appears that I loose negatives often..I don’t. In fact, I looked everywhere but in the proper file to find this. It WAS in the proper file and I have now made an edition of six 20/16″prints. That’s all folks, I won’t reprint.

When the late John Cleary suggested that I do a Marilyn Monroe Portfolio from my Seven Year Itch session, I carefully chose nine prints. The idea of printing an edition of 50 was overwhelming, since I make and sign my own work. Of course I didn’t make 50, I think it was 19 and I stopped. Then the frequently asked question started happening: “Are there any other images from this shoot?” My answer” Yes”. I had printed and exhibited others, but I did not relish making another edition . I still print my own work. It’s a philosophical matter.
During a recent meeting with my friend Daile Kaplan, Director of Photography at Swann Galleries, I floated the idea of adding a number of my Marilyn exhibition prints to the existing portfolio in an edition of 1. She agreed and here it is. We call it “The Enhanced Marilyn portfolio”. It includes my favorite, “Serious Marilyn” which is in the collection of the Brooklyn Museum.
