Hey There Fading Ad Enthusiasts and other friends!
recent show at the Williamsburg Art & Historical Center was
very exciting. Thanks to all of you who showed up at the opening
and thanks to all of you who have e-mailed me after reading the
Times and Daily News articles. These articles will soon be posted
on the site .
no secret that the last few months have been extremely challenging
for me. In September 2000, I started a new career as an elementary
school teacher- teaching movement and music to kindergarten thru
second grade in a school near my home in Brooklyn. The day I got
the job, I found out a tumor I had gotten removed from my rectum
was very small and the prognosis is excellent, thanks to self-examination,
early detection, and excellent medical care. Today, the surgery
is very conservative and less invasive- but the treatments are
more aggressive. So I've been receiving radiation and chemo-therapy
treatments since October 16, 2000 and that has been no picnic.
But survival is one of my passions and I am focusing on the end
forgive me if I do not respond quickly to your e-mail. I encourage
correspondence and look forward to hearing your continued feedback
about the project and newly uncovered fading ads.
am going to be adding many more images of fading ads to the site-
stuff I've taken over the last four years. I am also going to
start posting the images you've sent me of fading ads, as well
as some other images I've created like the one above, which is
a direct response to my recent round of chemotherapy.
