Everyday People

One of the absolute joys of being a photographer is meeting so many different people.  This brief video features images I have made here in the States and also in Europe during the last two years.  The images were taken in the following locations: Manhattan (Central Park, Lower East Side, Grand Central, Wall Street, the Village, Battery Park, Midtown, 123rd Street, 12th Avenue, 57th Street and Fifth Avenue), Bronx, Michigan, California, Florida, South Dakota, New Jersey (Hoboken, Newark, Ringwood, Morristown), Tuscany & Florence (Italy), Dublin, Ireland



Everyday People by Sly and the Family Stone

Sometimes I'm right and I can be wrong
My own beliefs are in my song
The butcher, the banker, the drummer and then
Makes no difference what group I'm in
I am everyday people, yeah yeah
There is a blue one who can't accept the green one
For living with a fat one trying to be a skinny one
And different strokes for different folks
And so on and so on and scooby dooby doo-bee
Oh sha sha - we got to live together
I am no better and neither are you
We are the same whatever we do
You love me you hate me you know me and then
You can't figure out the bag l'm in
I am everyday people, yeah yeah
There is a long hair that doesn't like the short hair
For bein' such a rich one that will not help the poor one
And different strokes for different folks
And so on and so on and scooby dooby doo-bee
Oh sha sha-we got to live together
There is a yellow one that won't accept the black one
That won't accept the red one that won't accept the white one
And different strokes for different folks
