Hollywood Blvd. was the place to go.

In the 70s, it was ‘on the turn’, a bit derelict but full of life and lots of street people. It was my birth as a street photographer. I began taking photos in 1973, spent most of 1974 and part of 1975 shooting what was happening on the  ‘Sidewalk of Fame,’ 15 blocks of terrazzo sidewalk embedded with stars and immortalized with names of entertainers.

I took thousands of photos; many were published in ‘Zoom’, ‘Photo’, ‘Creative Camera’ and other magazines. They were also exhibited here and in Europe. I occasionally visit the revitalized ‘Walk of Fame’ with a camera.
