Pete Seeger 1919-2014

I awoke to the very sad news that Pete Seeger had died last night. I met Pete Seeger when he was 89, at his home in Beacon, NY. I had gone to his house, which looks down upon a magnificent vista of the Hudson, to photograph and film him for the Working Families Party, a cause that Seeger felt strongly about.

For me, Pete Seeger was a hero. Someone who sacrificed for what he believed in and worked tirelessly for progressive causes. I feel humbled to have spent one afternoon with this genuinely modest man who had respect for his audience, his country, his river, and his world. —Phil Cantor60-PeteSeeger_resize_-em2

On looking at a wedding album

I received this wonderful email from Jeff Blackman, whose wedding I photographed 7 years ago. What he wrote reminded me, once more, on the power and importance of photographs in our lives. Even in this world where every meal is photographed and uploaded to a social media site, being able to hold an album in your hand, turn the pages with a four year-old in your lap, is an emotional experience to be savored.

“Last night on our seventh anniversary we pulled out the album to show our four year old son the wedding. The pictures are great – and really took us back to that day.
But what struck me was the album itself. I know in this day and age we tend to think of photography as a fairly disposable/immediate process, with our digital cameras and the ability to send photos instantly to Grandma 2 states away.
But actually being able to pull out the album is a truly special experience. I just wanted to let you know your work on the album – from the photo selection to the layout, etc – is much appreciated. It really captured the story and the feelings from that day. At the risk of sounding cliche, we will truly treasure it for years. Thank you from the bottom of our seven-year-married hearts.”
