(born March 6, 1938 in the Bronx, New York City) is a street photographer, and portrait and landscape photographer. He began photographing in color in 1962 and was an early advocate of the use of color during a time when there was significant resistance to the idea of color photography as serious art. In the early 1970s he taught the first color course at the Cooper Union in New York City[citation needed] where many of today’s renowned color photographers studied with him.
