The pleasure of me taking pictures is in the end result. Before this happens, you are sometimes in awe of the subject you are photographing. Listening to positive comments by the public viewing your work is a great ego trip that I enjoy the most.”I Made Someone Happy” I call my photographs, “Original” because what you see is what I saw at that moment. I do not enhance my pictures.
Some time ago at one of my exhibits a friend said “your photographs are Inspirational. So since then when I have a showing I call it “Inspirational Photography”, by Jerry Friedman.
I have had showings at Senior Centers, Libraries, Temples, Environmental Centers and local venues such as Riverdale Yonkers Society for Ethical Culture, Urgent Care of Riverdale and the Riverdale “Y”.
My work has earned me some ribbons along the way including a First Place Award. People that have purchased my photographs are enjoying a part of what I love to do. That makes us all happy.
