    Louis Mendes--That guy with the Graphic you see everywhere in Manhattan

    I always see this guy anywhere people are dressed up and might want a picture of themselves, and if it's a place that's really crowded like a gospel show where he's trying to catch ladies in their church hats on the way in, out and during intermission, he usually has a couple of friends with Graphics working with him. I've never photographed him or bought a photograph from him, but if I'm carrying my Technika, we usually exchange a few words or at least nod from opposite sides of the street.

    Someone mentioned to me a few weeks ago that he got a little feature in the Times, and I just came across it just now--

    Look at the slide show. Turns out that one of his specialties is Polaroid double exposures.

    Whereabouts have you seen him? I am yet to come across this gentleman.

    I recall reading another feature on him, but I don't remember where.

    I saw him hanging out in front of B&H a few weeks ago. I first saw him and his crew working a gospel show at the Beacon. I've seen him at parades like the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade, and I've seen him in Times Square just photographing tourists. I saw him walking around at PhotoPlus one year. Here's a photo of him by Helen Bach--

    Here's a flickr stream of photographs of him--

    Here's a Facebook fan page that someone created for him--

    He's everywhere.

    I remember Helen's photo when she posted it back when. Interesting that there's a Flickr stream and a Facebook fan page for him.
