The Conn Artist
I recently saw a bumper sticker that read, “Life Without Art is Stupid.” I agree, but that’s pretty obvious if you know anything about my love of music, dance, photography, painting, graphic design, sculpture, a really good meal. OK, I’m rambling but stick with this for a minute. Trust, these gems will keep you afloat when you least expect it and usually need them the most.
Conn’s photos are compelling, real and in many cases, a mere memory of an era long gone as New York evolves and seemingly moves further away from its heart and soul. As a photographer, I share that same passion and take a lot of random shots of whatever inspires me to pull out the D90 (warning: Nikon vs Canon equipment debate overrated; all in the eye of the beholder). Who knows what lasting impact those images will have.
“Life without art is stupid.”
