I met Douglas Benezra in the early seventies when he was an art director at J. Walter Thompson, the advertising agency here in Manhattan. His talent, exquisite taste, and unique visual perspective impressed me even then. Later years found him leaving both the advertising business and New York, but his talent and taste have matured and grown even more impressive. Now a photographer based in Portland, Oregon, Doug was impressed by the first two issues of this website and agreed to share some of his recent work. Click an illustration for an enlargement.
