have had a long term involvement with the environment and the American landscape.
In addition to documenting the Love Canal disaster, shortly thereafter I also
documented the GE South Glens Falls/Hudson River PCB situation among others.
I learned to sail with Pete Seeger's Clearwater movement, sailing on the Sojourner
Truth out of Hastings, N.Y., where I assisted in the development of the Hudson
River Photography Annual - training the volunteers, obtaining support funding
for the exhibition prizes and installing/curating for its first four years.
This exhibition was open free to all, including children, with prizes in numerous
categories. Getting people down to the River, sailing on it at sunset under
the Palisades and watching it become cleaner each year is something I will
always hold dear.
These links will take you to an overview of our environmental activities including newspaper coverage of a related Bronx River Restoration Project conceived to get the communities along the River involved and bring something positive to the major media channels regarding the South Bronx. To this day, people can now canoe or kayak this urban oasis.
It was covered extensively by TV, newspaper and radio networks:
Project UpLift - helicopter removal of stripped, abandoned vehicles dumped into the River and adjacent corridor
Miracle On The River Festival - A July 4th celebration to thank the community for its volunteer efforts in the completion of a long delayed river-side park and clean-up efforts

my thought one doesn’t replace the past,
one only adds a new link to it.
