In early 1966, eight or nine months after seeing a film about Edward Weston, I began seeing the world as if I had a camera to my eye. This persisted for a few months and I determined that I would be a photographer. At this time I did not even know the term fstop existed or how to use a camera.
Here are a few photographs I made with a 35mm camera from June of 1966 into March of 1967, at which time I began using an 8x10-inch view camera. I never went back to using a 35mm camera.
The first three photographs, the one of the girl in the ivy and two of cracked glass are from my first roll of film. Photography was clearly the right medium for me. As you can readily see, I was interested in photgraphing all types of subject matter. A more detailed account of this time in my life is here.
