"Old friends, sat on their park bench like bookends...."
I flew to Chicago this weekend to spend time with old friends. This old friend, Steven Herzfeld, is leading a peaceful life near India's northern border with Tibet. He rarely makes it to the states and I haven't seen him in almost two decades. We first met in the mid 60s. He's an intellectual and spiritual force. I'm happy to have make this portrait of him which was inspired by a recent meeting with photo great Jim Sugar earlier this month.
