My vintage documentary portrait captures Bill Keller former Executive Editor of the New York Times newspaper. At the time My portrait of Michael Harrington was taken as part of a photo documentary project concerning a national conference held in Portland, Oregon concerning the topic of full employment. At the time the Humphrey Hawkins Bill, sponsored in part by former Vice president, Hubert Humphrey, was under intense discussion. The conference (Wages Welfare Or What?) became a public forum to discuss issues of employment, health care and poverty as they affected Oregonians. My portrait of Harrington was was made during an afternoon speech he made, breaking from the conference. This is a studied composition where the trees in the park blocks (with their repetitive forms) became an essential "character" in the composition. It remains an absolute favorite.

Michael Harrington is the author of "The Other America: Poverty in the United States." He is well known as a Democratic Socialist Leader in American Politics. At the time of this photo, he taught political science at Queens College in New York. He is associated for his influence on the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, especially for Johnson's infamous War On Poverty Program. Harrington helped to found the Democratic Socialist Oreganizing Committee (DSOC) which opposed the Vietnam War.

My documentary image was made utilizing a Nikon F film camera. The detail is enhanced by my use of an ultra sharp 180mm Nikkor telephoto lens. The exposure was made on Kodak TRI-X film. The original negatives have been kept in dark storage and are in pristine condition.
