I strongly recommend this novel by Marisa Silver, "Mary Coin." A historical fiction account of the life journeys and searches of various people whose paths cross as a result of one of the most famous photographs of all time (known as "Migrant Mother" by Dorothea Lange.)

If you don't make that right turn to LSD, the beach is straight ahead.

Please take a moment and check this blog post for an update on my project at Spertus Institute as part of the "Jewish Artist's Lab."
It's stimulating to be surrounded by the other artists involved with the Lab! Can't wait to see the results in the summer at Spertus.

Story
Tagline
Photographer. Musician/Music lover. http://www.stephenmlevinphotos.com/
Introduction
Married to Judy. 
Two children and their spouses--Jordan (Elise) and Audrey (Michael).
Four grandsons--Gabe, Drew, Isaac, and Charlie.
Grew up and still live in the Chicagoland area. 

Bragging rights
Avid and involved photographer and musician. I've been active and involved with photography for a LONG time. Even did quite a bit freelance photojournalism for the local papers about 30 years ago. Used to love B&W film and still have an affinity for B&W images. I much prefer working on the computer to working in the lab with chemicals. I always have my eyes open for photo opps and try to have my camera with me as much as possible. Even the iPhone, if necessary! Always observing light and shadow and form. I am also a musician. Started out with classical piano lessons as a young child and moved on to the guitar (acoustic and electric), mandolin, and bass. What a way to relax and lose oneself...playing music! Both music and photography keep me sane....to some degree.
