The Early Years
The early years are a few images from of my older photography work, photographed about 30 years ago. I was inspired by the Master of the Decisive Moment and Black and white 35mm photography, Henri Cartier Brisson.Back then, I would walk the streets of San Francisco, in search of the Precise Moment, and would imagine Brisson's presence and I work with the old Canon F-1 camera with a 50mm lens and shot candid black and white available light photography.
