My inspiration comes from photographers like Annie Leibovitz; and like Robert Mapplethorpe’s photos of Patti Smith; and now like the recently discovered Chicago street photographer Vivian Mayer – look at this web site now. Incredibly inspiring street photography, from the 1950s to the 1970s. It’s great.. and it’s also depressing in some ways. That photography is so real you are there. And I would hate to be warped to the 1950s, having to go through half a century of turmoil all over again.
