I also met Valentina who showed me a few of his images; I was reminded of Roman Vishniac's photography amd Laurence Salzmann of Philly.
I really want to purchase his book which is out of print.

Anyway I was very egaged by his amazing work. He has an eye for lighting/composition/ subject and NUANCE.
I ended up purchasing for my own collection.

I sent a link to a photographer who has a gallery in CHicago; he said "too sad"
I so disagree, he see's beauty in everything, and is not purposefully selecting Diane Arbus type characters, just everyday people who are not models!
