“… the most memorable was the shot I took of Muhammad Ali,” says Jeff Rothstein. “Unfortunately the negatives are long gone, but luckily I still have a print I made at the time.” A true New Yorker, Jeff has been shooting street photography for over 50 years. He has seen it all – times change, attitudes evolve. For the younger generation, Jeff’s street photography allows them to see what the world was once like. For the older generation, his work offers a comforting dose of nostalgia. In each frame that he develops, you feel the love he has for the place he calls home. What is most evident when speaking to Jeff is his passion for the craft. He has the energy to create, to document, and to tell the truth. 50 years on from his first roll of film, Jeff shares with us the photographic fire that’s still burning strong.
