Steve Kushner - 1970
Portrait of Steve Kushner - 1970


I shot this portrait of my then neighbor, Steve Kushner, in 1970. Steve was one of the best artists I have ever met. A true Renaissance Man.

I was so pleased to be able to capture some of Steve’s intensity in this portrait. He really liked it, as did I.

Today is Steve Kushner’s birthday. He is greatly missed, even though we lost touch for years.

I recorded a telephone conversation when we spoke after 38 years.
Here it is.

I built a website for Steve to showcase some of his work (mostly oil paintings). Here is a link www.artofkushner.com

Happy Birthday, Steve, wherever you are …..
