I was traveling regularly to New York to make connections in the commercial and editorial photography world as well as the fine art world. Someone suggested I contact Marvin Heiferman at the upper east side Castelli gallery and he graciously welcomed me to show him my work. I clearly remember he was going through a box of prints by Robert Adams. I had seen Adams’ work in magazines and always thought it dull and boring. Marvin took the time to show me why they were considered good art and expanded my understanding of the variety of ways to express ideas through photography. After Marvin left Castelli to be an independent corporate art consultant he got in touch and we sold my flower photograms to corporate art collections. I was an artist!
