On the 23rd and the 24th of March when Rick Santorum was still in the race, breathing hard with rabid sincerity and rigid morality I was assigned by The New Yorker to go and shoot a right wing convention in Harrisburg, PA. When Emma Horning, my erstwhile assistant and I got there it was raining hard cleaning the street from the dust of a current draught. Ideas within the hotel where the convention was held, gave birth to a passionate if limited view of governance. Rather than wear the badge of The New Yorker which would have seen me and Emma to the door, I adorned myself with “Repeal Obama Care” buttons, Ron Paul stickers and the like, put on a tie (something I haven’t done in years) and waded into the fray of the very enthusiastic and friendly Right Wing birds of a feather, hawkish you could call them, all but some wanting to annihilate Obama with the sweep of history’s wand.

Within the chosen role of political chameleon I had a great time photographing with my very small and terrifically sharp Ricoh GXR and asking questions, it was a wonderful weekend. I thank all of the people in the room and The New Yorker for allowing me access into this living reality called America.

After a multitude of years all engaged in the creative and innovative relationship my agent, Bill Charles and I have decided to part ways. In due time, there will be no resemblance of visual or other information on his website and anybody who would like to see prints or work with me in any regards, should be in touch with me directly.
