On Friday April 17th, Harold celebrated his 84th birthday! He received this surprise video birthday card from Ted Forbes of The Art of Photography whose podcasts are seen by thousands of his subscribers worldwide. `
Harold was delighted to receive the birthday greeting from Ted — signed by over 100 viewers (and growing). Messages came from Kuwait, Bangladesh, Colombia, China, Russia, Finland, Australia, Portugal, Costa Rica, Canada, and, of course, Southern New Jersey!
Ted is putting together a documentary about Harold and came to visit us in November. In February he went to New York to get a few more interviews from others about Harold’s work including Sean Corcoran, curator of prints and photographs at the Museum of the City of New York, Howard Greenberg of the Howard Greenberg Gallery and Bob Shamis, independent curator and former student of Harold’s (also former curator at the Museum of the City of New York).
We look forward to the documentary and thank Ted for helping Harold celebrate his 84th birthday!
PLEASE NOTE: The photo appearing at 2:51 in the film (couple embracing) is not Harold’s. Ted’s apologies!
