1984: I was with my family in Moorestown, New Jersey, on a short break after my first semester at Rhode Island School of Design. It was Christmas Eve, some time around midnight. Maybe it was really Christmas. It was foggy, and I decided to go outside with my camera and a tripod. These are two of the photos I took that night.
The second photo was unusual. I called it "The Johnsons' Laundry" and it shows the neighbors' laundry left hanging out at night. Eventually the photo was included in American Photography 6, a Rizzoli publication; and it received the Hudson River Contemporary Artists' Awart for Photography in the Hudson River Open at the Hudson River Museum in 1989.
