Fifty Years with the Camera
21 Nov 2013
Coming of age in the sixties was much more than what I realized at the time. Looking back at my negatives shows that I grew up wide-eyed and uninformed. Then we went to Atlanta to cover "the funeral of Dr. King". Seeing that day unfold, the people, the speeches, and us trying to record the day and not draw to much attention opened my eyes. For fifty years I have experienced much but tried to remove myself when I had a camera in my hand.
The kids in the MLK.001 will be 45 years older this year. I would like to mount an project of finding these people and record their lives and add new portraits of them. Hope the mom is still alive. This day was at Moorehouse College in Atlanta and Julian Bond was delivering his eulogy to Dr King. mjb
