8th Ave and West 41st Street, New York City, March 1983

New York City March 1983

This photograph to me is a study in the contradictions of our society. It was taken 31 years ago and the sad fact is that the contradictions still exist.

This was taken with a Chinon CM4, my first SLR and shot on kodacolor film. It was semi automatic in that the photographer set the shutter speed and the camera adjusted the aperture. The photographer had to manually advance the film after each exposure. (Digital photography wasn’t even a dream in those days)
