Three plus decades ago my high school photo class friends and I studied many photographers. However, the work of Tommy Alcorn (a young American photographer whose life was cut short by an accident at age 17) inspired and captivated us. The black and white images were lyrical and seemed to probe the meaning of life. Plus, he was a teen like us.

Deep connection I feel here, to my past, to the past.
