Homage to Ralston

I have not had the urge to make a black & white photograph in over 30 years, but when I did, I thought of one of my all time favorite artists - Ralston Crawford (Canadian/America 1906-1978). 

Crawford was a gifted and talented painter, print maker and photographer. Ralston worked in New Orleans for a period of time , making some of the finest Jazz Funeral images I have ever seen!
