"People, Places, Things..."
Two years ago, I had an idea to shoot a documentary covering the solitary lives of elderly African-American men. I purchased a digital camera to begin the process, and while learning how to operate the camera, I figured I should also learn to take a proper photo while I was at it.
Two years later, that camera has barely been in video mode and I’ve gained a love for shooting film.
I simply shoot my life. I capture my neighborhood, my family, NYC, co-workers and work (he drives eighteen-wheeler tankers for a living.)
My University education has been stretched over the past twenty years without completion. Last I attended, I studied Creative Writing and Illustration – Charles Rich Jr.
