Inside Flip Per’s Camera bag! (Bag No73)

Hello Street Hunters,

I Started taking pictures in the early 1970’s. My sister had an old Pentax that she never used, so I commandeered it and started to photograph everything. It was not until I saw the work of W. Eugene Smith that it hit me, the so called “bug”.
“A Walk To The Paradise Garden” or the “Pittsburgh Photographs” but especially “A Madwoman in a Haitian Clinic” blew me away. I knew at that point I wanted to take pictures of people and in black & white.
