"I came across your site this morning by way of L.A. Nocturne's site. When I looked at your Hollywood photos, I was really touched. I decided to add a link on my "Swingin' in L.A." page (http://www.tuxjunction.net/ladance.htm) to alert visitors to my site who might be visiting L.A. that it is not all glamour and what they see on T.V. Your photos really give a good look at Hollywood today. When friends from Chicago visited me last month, the first thing they wanted to see was Hollywood. They were astonished! Your photos would have saved us a trip. I didn't want to discourage them, so I just let Hollywood speak for itself.

Thanks for posting your photos on the web!

"david,
i just stumbled across your name in a "photography in NY" book from the fall, under saba gallery. it's always a surprise and treat to see a name from the past. when i interned at la times, ventura, you were there with denise, jesse, meg and chawkins, and i was the intern (from purdue and NJ) with the deer-in-the-headlines look on my face all day long. anyway, your work here is tremendous and provocative and painful, and i'll return to look at it again. I'm happy to have come across it. but i'm SO on deadline right now (i started a weekly newspaper in aspen with my husband and friends and now am the editor). so i need to get back to it. but i wanted to say "wow" and congratulations on this incredible work. Do you have other work out there to see -- galleries, books? i'm in love with black-and-white photography -- i try to make my own and also buy what i can afford and encourage all my photographer friends (one has his first piece in National Geographic this month -- peter mcbride, another talented young guy from aspen who wrote/shot for us for three years). anyway, i hope this finds you well.

Best wishes.

"David--Your work is a pleasure. Some of the best, most intelligently drawn images I have seen on the internet. I have spent a considerable amount of time over the last 20 years photographing the peculiar vagaries of the California culture in the north and the south. Your work is very affirming. Thank you. All the Best
