photography from the Chesapeake Bay watershed by Bill Emory
Harry Jerome Arnold
God’s Poem Writer, Harry Jerome Arnold, died the first week of May, 2015 of esophageal cancer. Reportedly, his was a quiet and peaceful death (at home, with Hospice care). After being homeless for many years, Harry died with the dignity of a roof over his head. He lived at the Crossings. He was, in our interactions, a saint, like a wandering holy man. Quick to smile and give kindness to other people.
I stumbled off the track to success in 1968, started chasing shadows that summer. Since then, In addition to farm-laborer and newspaper photographer my occupational incarnations include dishwasher, janitor, retail photo clerk, plumber, HVAC repairman, auto mechanic, CAT scan technologist, computer worker and politico (whatever it takes to buy a camera.) I am on the road to understanding black and white photography.

One thought on “Harry Jerome Arnold”
I really appreciate your images and all the time you take to post them. I don’t comment much because I don’t have anything clever or witty or wise to say beyond the obvious, that these are damn good. I can see that you see the people you engage with, fully see them, and that’s the art, that’s your gift.
