We Can't Go Home Again - Production and Personal Photos
31 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I studied film at SUNY Binghamton and worked with director Nicholas Ray on "We Can't Go Home Again" in 1971-72 as both cinematographer and editor, as well as crew. See my IMDb record at http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2117029/.

I shot lots of B&W stills on and off set and you can find selections on Flickr at http://www.flickr.com/photos/mg-irc/sets/72057594135692080/. Two of my photos of Nick were featured in the book "Live Fast, Die Young: The Wild Ride of Making Rebel Without a Cause" by Lawrence Frascella and Al Weisel published 10/05. Those two photos and a few others can be seen on the Amazon site at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0743260821/. Enjoy!
