50 Years in Your Face, Photography by Donna Rae Altieri / by hadley hooper


It all started with a Minolta 101, a college graduation gift that educated me to observe the world through a viewfinder.  Get “hip to my trip,” get tangled in my double and triple exposures of the 1960s streets of New York with so much to see at once, and my 1970s-1980s “experiments” in color manipulation in times without computer tricks. Travel on my journeys, peek into my encounters, and enjoy my storytelling images, all done full frame, always the old school way.  Photography has kept my diary for over 50 years, and now I have the privilege of sharing some pages with you.
