One of my first assignments when I moved to New York. I had just become a staffer at Wagner International Photos and was sent to cover the trade show which opened the Javits Center – a physical rehabilitation conference.
Another time and place (two cameras, Nikon F3’s – one for b&w, one for color; manual focus, hope it works Vivitar 285(?) flash) and an honor to meet the governor. Mario passed away on January 1st.
