Bostonians, 1975

Bostonians was an assignment to photograph the people of the city, of all walks of life, for an exhibition and book to commemorate the 1976 bi-centennial of American independence from England. A large inflated pavilion housing on a multimedia color slide show, in which I also collaborated, was erected in a central location in the city. Wrapped around the exterior of the pavilion were 152 of my b&w pictures, each enlarged to 4×6 feet and imbedded in plexiglass. I personally developed the 534 rolls of 35mm film to insure optimum quality for the large enlargements made from the small negatives. The pictures were on display for three years and a book titled Bostonians was published. Number of pictures in original edit: 152.
