“He has lived in the down-on-its-luck small city in northeast Pennsylvania for 69 years — his entire life. He started taking pictures of car wrecks for the local newspaper while he was in high school and ran a photo studio from his house for more than 35 years. In between the weddings, portraits and commercial assignments — on which he raised a family — he shot quirky street images for his own pleasure.
