These "Images of Interest"©, Wall Art Black & White Photographs, are produced in our darkroom from family negatives dating back to the 1930's. Your interest in them keeps us very active in a labor of love. My Grandfather, my Dad, and my Uncle started the tradition which I learned and still enjoy today. As a professional photographer, it's a privilege to preserve this tradition and thereby offer you silver gelatin photographs that are pleasant visual investments for you and all our numerous and discerning customers.
Your review of our Galleries will provide many choices among 1939 NY World's Fair photographs, Architecture photographs, Infrared photographs, Landscape photographs, and Greeting Cards. Click Gallery titles below.
Black & White Photography: "Nite Sites" - 1939 New York World's Fair Photographs
1939 had many interesting events over its 12 months span but the most dynamic was The 1939 NY World's Fair. It was impressive and quite extensive, covering 1200 acres in Queens New York, the west end of Long Island. Dad volunteered for the 2 year span and was given access to many of the pavilions after most of the crowds had gone home. 44 million people attended the Fair until it closed on October 27, 1940. Unfortunately all the magnificent pavilions, statues, structures, pools, and fountains, except one, were completely demolished after the close of this magnificent spectacle.
Dad experimented with black and white photography at night and created the “Nite Sites” series you see in this Gallery. Ironically, He photographed all the pavilions on September 11, 1940. He processed the negatives back then but, due to WW2 restrictions, it wasn't until 55 years later that I produced the first set of prints. He had the negatives buried in his darkroom. A number of the prints are now part of the permanent collection of the Queens Museum in New York City. The Museum building is the only remaining structure from the Art Deco event of the twentieth century.

Black & White Photography: Architecture Photographs
A BA degree from Kean University's Department of Industrial Arts provided me with a concentration in architecture. Still at home is a collection of hand drawn lead pencil and india ink prints of toys, tools, machines, and of course buildings. My younger daughter, a successful professor at Parsons School of Design (NYC), enjoys looking at them more than 50 years after the fact along with my grandson who's fascinated by the drawings.
It's easy for me to look in my viewfinder and capture a structure in such a way that’s pleasing to my eye. As a photographer, the black & white structural photographs, both day and night along with building interiors, are a carryover from my college days.
You’ll find architectural images in other galleries such as Infrared.
Black & White Photography: Infrared Photographs
The use of infrared film has always been a fascination with me since first "discovering" it back in the 1980's. For a photographer, it can be quite unpredictable to work with at times because it can be affected by heat, humidity and whatever exposure you may choose. Nonetheless, when you get it right, the results are truly very enjoyable. It makes black & white photography both challenging and amusing, if you will. Kind of like a box of Cracker Jacks; you never know exactly what you'll get. Then again, that's what keeps me coming back over and over for more of the same challenge. It's my favorite Black & White film.
Welcome to “The Twilight Zone”!
Black & White Photography: Landscape Photographs
In God’s majesty, He’s created a world of wonder all around us. Mountains, valleys, lakes, farm land, trees, brooks, rivers, and the list for landscapes goes on and on. Depending on your location, you can see the change of each season and find something personally appealing in all of them.
Trees viewed early spring or late fall have always been a source of wonder for this photographer. The lack of leaves reveals the true inner workings of each tree. Here one can the view symmetry of the branches growing from the trunk yet on other trees, the symmetry is not so obvious. What also works great is that when the leaves return, new photographs can be created using infrared film for special surreal effects in black & white photography. This Gallery contains a number of tree images as does the Infrared Gallery.

These, in turn, suit the needs of a wide range of our clients who choose them to enhance the various spaces within their interior decors.
