I had the pleasure of working with Ken at the Daily World in 1985.
We remained friends -- often covering the same stories -- until his death in 2009.
He was a gentleman, a talented photographer and a comrade in the struggle for justice.

NYC Politicians: de Blasio (again) and Stringer


Original article (link to remote site)


Following New York City politicians has gotten a number of my photos some rotation - the list includes Anthony Weiner and Scott Stringer (below) but the top draw is Bill de Blasio, whom I've followed for several years. After Bill was elected mayor my shot of him at a 2013 labor rally got picked up by a number of news services, here in the U.S., in France, in Brazil, and doubtless other venues that I am unaware of.

From the U.S.:

Scott Stringer (New York City Comptroller, replacing de Blasio)




As is often the case with my photos of NYC politicians, a shot I took of Scott Stringer when he was relatively unknown is now in use at wikipedia (and elsewhere) - because the former Manhattan Borough President is now NYC Comptroller, a post held by Bill de Blasio before he was elected mayor.

History's Biggest Blunders




Anthony Weiner's sexting scandal was the final entry in 2012's "History's Biggest Blunders" - I found the book, and my photo, by sheer accident. I picked up the book at Barnes and Noble while waiting for my wife. I was a bit surprised, but happy, to see my photo - and my photo credit.
