At th2 2002 parade, Berko Productions, a NY film production  company, made a short documentary on my photography of Coney Island and the parade. The piece is part of a series, called "New Yorkers", and focuses on a different person every week. The documentary will be aired on Japanese NHK Public Television as well as on flights between NY and Tokyo. Many thanks to Shiho Kataoka,  and her great crew.

Th2 2002 parade was outstanding.  50 of this year's images are posted. 

For those of you interested in why so many people are drawn to mermaids and their powerful symbolic and historical role,  you might want to check out "Mermaids - Symbols of Transformation" on this web site.

If you are in some of these images and would like a copy please email me with your address and I will send them to you.

Please leave a note in the guest book.

Demons of Delirium

"The brazen voice of the island begins to beat upon the ear of drums like the pulse of fever, the leaping horses and the flying cars are metamorphosed into the agile demons of delirium, and through the doorways of endless concert halls and drinking places one gets glimpses of faces that follow and haunt like the unspeakable phantoms of a dream"

Guy Wetmore Carryl,

"Marvelous Coney Island." Munsey's Magazine V.25, No 5 (September 1901)
