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.)

    Bill, I need to tell you much I enjoy your images and ruminations, which I try to visit once a week or so. I like all of it: the dog, the sisters, the Charlottesville bits, the mysterious trips to Providence (I’m never sure why you go), and certainly the moving images in the family category recently. The way you use your camera to share your life without the least touch of ego–that is a thing to be admired.
