HI ALL:
RECENTLY I SAW AN ARTICLE RELATING TO ALBERT NYE STROBES. I WAS A NEW PHOTOGRAPHER IN NEW YORK CITY IN 1966 WITH A STUDIO IN A BUILDING AT 333 PARK AVE. SO. I RECEIVED A VISIT FROM ALBERT WHO SOON BECAME A CLOSE FRIEND. I BOUGHT A "PORTABLE" 1000 WATT SECOND UNIT THAT WAS ENCLOSED IN A PLYWOOD BOX AND WEIGHED ABOUT 40 POUNDS. I THEN BOUGHT ANOTHER UNIT THAT WAS THE SAME BUT ENCLOSED IN METAL. I STILL HAVE THAT UNIT. LATER ON I BOUGHT TWO TWO THOUSAND WATT UNITS FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHER JERRY SHATZBERG {PUZZLE OF A DOWNFALL CHILD} AND {PANIC IN NEEDLE PARK} THE 2000 UNITS WEIGHED MORE THAN 200 POUNDS AND THE CABLE FROM THE UNIT LOOKED LIKE A HOSE, BUT NOT THE GARDEN VERIETY, MORE LIKE THE FIREMAN TYPE. I BROUGHT THEM TO MEXICO IN 1970. EVENTUALLY ONE EXPLODED AND I SOLD THE OTHER. ANYONE INTERESTED IN MORE ALBERTO NYE STORIES PLEASE CONTACT ME.
SALUDOS
