I was reading a blog from a colleague, based in NY, Avi Gerver about his first photo. I commented on the blog about my experience in photography and how I made it here. I remember different moments in my childhood where I took images, but I don’t have a vivid recollection on the image itself. I only have a well vivid memory of this image. Is an image of my younger brother Edgar, he was about 1 1/2 years old, so that make me about 10. This was in 1978. No computer, no internet, no video games, no cable TV, no VHS, no CD’s or DVD’s (my father car had an 8 track radio), just only the good old fashioned “playing outside” stuff. At that moment I was taken B & W film developing classes at a community school on the summer. On the summer, a camera loaded with film, a place to develop the film and make prints? This was HEAVEN. This is the only image that I have, where I took it, developed the film, made the enlargement and developed the enlargement. At that time I made about 12 or 15 different enlargements on different sizes. This is the only one that I believe I have, it’s an 8 x 10 (I think I have another 5 x 7, but I have to look for it). Moments like this made me who I am today. Now I have boxes filled with prints, slides and negatives from my kids, family reunions, vacations and a lot more. Terabytes of images on external hard drives from weddings, portraits, vacations, my kids, friends, birthdays, my lovely wife, ect. Don’t get me wrong, I’m only 42, but I didn’t start on the digital age of photography (like other people), I came form the “Old Testament” of photography FILM.
