Post Mondrian (I Got You)

Shot Of The Day: October 29, 2016






QOTD:
There’s no doubt, not when I’m with you
When I’m without, I stay in my room
Where do you go, I get no answer
You’re always out, it gets on my nerves

Tom Hayden, Presente!

Tom Hayden (with Mark Rudd)
Thomas Emmet “Tom” Hayden – December 11, 1939 – October 23, 2016 (Left, pictured with fellow activist Mark Rudd).
 
I first heard Tom Hayden speak in 1974 at a protest at Kent State, held four years after the shootings. He was impressive. Years later, when I was involved with new SDS and worked as the editor of Next Left Notes I met Tom many times. He once quipped (to Mark Rudd when Mark asked him if he knew me): “We see each other once a year in book stores.” This shot seems a fitting tribute.
 
In 2007 Tom was in NYC to promote his latest book. Mark grabbed him so I could snap this impromptu portrait. It’s one of my favourite shots of both of these guys – two Movement stalwarts. RIP Tom Hayden, Presente!

Down On The Corner

QOTD:
Down on the corner, out in the street
Willy and the Poorboys are playin’
Bring a nickel, tap your feet

Backstory: Another deli in my New York Delicatessen series, this one is on the end of the NYC Arts Cypher building. Regarding the music: my grandfather and I used to listen to this album. He insisted the name of the band was Willy And The Poor Boys. I said, No Pap Pap, it’s Creedence Clearwater. After awhile we both agreed it was Willy and The Poor Boys…

Locale: Stapleton, Staten Island

Equipment: Nikon D5500 / Sigma 18~200mm f3.5-6.3 DC
