One of my best friends, Virginia Ivey, is expecting twins. Here she is at almost 36 weeks.
I haven’t been shooting much lately. I’ve found, in the past, that if I do a series of self portraits it helps budge that big ol’ Rock up the Hill. So, here I am. Maybe we can get that rock to roll…..
My son Orion tells me that “I’ll really blow minds” if I exhibit this shot. He tells me they’re the “John Lennons of our generation”….I had, like, no idea when I was shooting them…. (What is the deal with all the white kids getting their inspiration from inner city African-Americans, anyway?–Somewhere I disconnected from the cultural movement….I wish I could say I get it, but I don’t–but I CAN dance to the music…Oh, yeah–now I remember–My parents thought the same thing when most of what I wanted to dance and listen to came out of Motown…) So, here goes, Orion…Is your mind blown?
I’ve had requests for shots of my family. Well, here we are; just taken on my 56th birthday. (l-r) Hawk, Orion, Zane, Scott and Steve. The biological sons are Hawk, Orion, and Zane. Steve, coincidentally (?) a Newton, has become core Family, good friend to all of us. There is no Mrs Newton, except for Zane’s wife Karen, the mother of my two fine granddaughters Kaia and Zadie.
