I’m not a native to Southern California – born and raised in the garden part of New Jersey – moving to Los Angeles in the mid 1970’s. I was just turning thirteen. A hard age to invent oneself in a new land.
For many years, I declared loudly my desire to move out of LA. This is no longer the case; now, I LOVE LA. I embrace it’s “bigness”. I’m delighted by it’s character(s). I revel knowing how each step in this city opens up endless possibilities. I’m a connoisseur of the slight change in the plumb of sidewalk and alley urine. I love how cultures collide and remix into something new, something to be seen, something to capture.
My fingers itch when I’m on the streets.
