Summary of project (150 wds):

“I became interested in photography when a young man and am still an active amateur. As I often lectured on my social documentary style, I decided to publish a book of 200 of my images. I mostly used a 28mm lens on a 35mm camera over a sixty year period. This lens needed me in close and as I am trying to portray feeling I titled the book ‘Touch Me’ as I am often close enough to touch the subject and I wanted to be touched emotionally.”
