Publishing this magazine fills my weeks with happy surprises. A recent one was when I heard from Robert M. Johnson, a street photographer based in Worcester, Massachusetts. He sent me a video he created from a number of street photos he made back in the 1970’s. When I saw it, I knew I had to share it with our community. I had to stop the video several times to have a closer look at many of the photos.
Do you remember the 70’s? If not, you were either not born yet or too buzzed to recall. It wasn’t exactly America’s finest hour…but Robert did an excellent job recording the essence of the time period. It makes me wish I had kept better track of my negatives from back then. And it made me happy that he saved his.
It’s not too late to get out on the streets of your town and start recording real life as it happens today. Thirty or forty years from now you’ll be amazed at what you see.
Watch his video and enjoy Robert’s amazing work:
