Beginnings…The 1980’s

This is how I got my start in portrait-making. Eagle Rock High School, Northeast Los Angeles, beginning in 1985. Thirty-years later I still make portraits. Human beings are my species, full of every possible healthy and unhealthy trait a thing on this planet can muster. People, in all their grandiosity, as both the life-givers and killers of our Mother Earth both piss me off and give me inspiration and in being the bearers of this cosmic complexity, they deserve the honor of this thing we call a “portrait.”
