“When I take a picture I try to capture a fleeting moment, point in time, a place I’ve been, so I can experience that moment over and over again.” … Jack Habdank
I started taking pictures seriously over 35 years ago. Mainly to provide me with an artistic satisfaction to overcome the strains of a stressful business career. In those days we used film and developed the pictures ourselves. I set up a Ciba-chrome lab in my basement and off I went. To my satisfaction much of my work hangs on walls of old friends and others which unfortunately now I have lost touch with.
Over the years for one reason and another I distanced myself from what I really enjoy doing, taking pictures. With the support of my lovely wife, who in her own right is an accomplished photographer, I’ve had the great fortune to resume my pursuit of photography, my true joy.
For me a picture needs to evoke an emotion like sadness, happiness or a celebration of life. That split second that occurs between focusing through the lens and depressing the shutter is the magic of photography. Join me in my journey into photography.
