"I am a 95-year-old photographer born in Pennsylvania in 1922. I was raised in Europe and returned to the USA in my early teens. I have been a photographer for most of my life, some 75 years or so. I have spent my life capturing the souls of the people I have met and I still photograph today.

I always have a camera around my neck and still love sneaking up on people and take pictures!

Over the years I have met and photographed many truly brilliant people; John F Kennedy, Jackson Pollock, Leonard Cohen, Marlene Dietrich, Pablo Picasso, Frank Lloyd Wright and Sophia Loren to name a few."
