About The Photographer
I received my first camera in 1969 and shot the
Year of Rebellion images in 1970. Beyond a
couple of semesters of study at Brooks
Institute of Photography, I am largely self-taught.
I am reluctant to join the "digital
revolution" and remain committed to film. To

The images capture what I witnessed. I have tried to present them objectively,
but I must admit that being involved in these events was as important as
recording them. Almost 40 years later, I am proud to say I was there. It is sad to
see the country again divided over yet another war.
A special thanks to Richard Flacks and Jack Whalen for allowing me to quote
extensively from their book Beyond the Barricades: The Sixties Generation Grows Up,
to Jeff De La Cruz for his insight and assistance with the layout and text and to
the Daily Nexus, successor to the El Gaucho, for providing access to their archives.
