I grew up, although not very far up, in northern New Jersey. This was sufficient to blight my subsequent life. I first picked up a camera when I was very young, but an adult informed me that I was not supposed to drive nails with it. "See those two people undressing over there?" he said. "They are married, but not to each other. Point the glass thing at them and push this button." I followed his advice, and have made an excellent living in photography ever since.
