9:00 AM - Between Light and Shadow
What do you most value in your friends? Deodorant.
What did you want to be as a kid when you grew up? I wanted to write movie screenplays. I actually have written some things I've never shown to anyone.
What is your most treasured possession? My first Hasselblad camera, 500C. I got it in 1979 and it had over 150,000 exposures when I got it. I worked it hard every day and put on another 350,000 exposures on it. It now sits on the mantel proudly having bought a house or two and a few cars.
What was your first concert? WAR, in 1973 (Cisco Kid, Low Rider, etc...)
What has been your proudest moment? I was really proud when I realized that I was either thanked or had work published in the books of 27 other photographers. Means more to me than anything I ever published under my name.
If you could have a theme song, what would it be? Beatles/John Lennon's "In My Life" (I'm a sucker for romance...)
