Ever since my Pop Pop gave me an Instamatic camera back in the sixties, I've been in love with photography. Or, perhaps, he noticed my inquisitiveness with cameras and those burnt-out flash cubes, and bought me my first camera…
As time went on, I'd accumulated all kinds, including a Polaroid SX70. When I was seventeen, I saved up my paychecks for a 35mm; my Minolta XG1! You could find me on overpasses at night, shooting the headlights and tail lights of the traffic below, in slow-shutter mode.
