    I wonder how many of us developed a love for photography,
    I know I did, with Life as a kid.

    Halsman, and Smth, and Parks... Eisie.... geez.

    I fell in love photography because it fit my life better than painting and sculpture. If I were rich I'd go back to painting and noone would ever hear from me again. Having said that, NatGeo and Life were a big part of my childhood. I think they helped form my early ideas of what an important image should be.
