Ben Fernandez tour de Hoboken


I was lucky enough to meet a true living legend of photography, Ben Fernandez ( and mentor to my friend, Michael Hintlian. We have a Visual Reportage Workshops gallery show hanging in Ben’s Almanac Gallery in Hoboken for the next several months. Listening to Ben’s stories and enjoying the hospitality he and his wife, Siiri, extended us this weekend was just icing on the cake. Here is a quick set of images I made while taking the long-way home from the gallery after hanging our show. It is a new way of “seeing” for me something Michael has been teaching me. Reacting without thinking.
