Counterparts: Photographic Beginnings

David Small

My interest in photography began in my teens and developed while serving with the Army of Occupation, in Paris.  There, I learned darkroom techniques (from a POW) and went on to become a Stars & Stripes photographer.  Back in New York, I attended the School of Modern Photography, and went into the field commercially, for a time.  It was quite a few years later that I returned to photography, mainly as a creative outlet.

Though having a certain artistic bent, it was after 30 years of marriage to a "real" photographer that I found my niche, as a photographic artist.  It happened on a New England island, my Polaroid in hand and the usual vacation snapshots in mind.  Instead, a "double take" look at the kind of wondrous detail my eye had long been drawn to led to my first "instant" successes, and, two years later, my first one-person show.

We have shown our work jointly in several Counterparts exhibits in our local area
(Westchester and Putnam Counties, NY), as well as individually, in various venues.
