154. Theme 233 ~Photographer~

I was fortunate enough recently to attend a lecture and slide show given by George Tice. According to the Getty Museum, Mr. Tice is “one of the best known fine-art photographers in the nation. His prints are in many museums including the Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Metropolitan Museum, where he had a one-man show in 1972.”  While he was giving his lecture, I snapped this photo of him looking at a slide of himself taken 40 years ago.  Mr. Tice completed his latest book, Paterson II, in 2006, which is a sequel to Paterson, published in 1972. He said his favorite photo of his Paterson series is  Joe’s Barbershop.

“Lou’s on First”  is the name of  this monument/memorial located in Paterson, NJ.  It was dedicated in June, 1992 as a tribute to their home town boy, Lou Costello.  For those not familiar with Abbott & Costello, (Bud Abbott was the other half of this comedy duo), check them out here.   Hey Abbott!!!!!!
