I've been searching for the essence of the American character since 1974. I studied photojournalism at the University of Missouri, have visited all of the first 48 states. I've exhibited at several locations in America and England, including the Robin Rice Gallery in New York, and Duke University. My work has been published in many magazines, including Time, Smithsonian, and Life.

This photo was taken on the roof terrace of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, looking south over Central Park toward the street Central Park South. Fifth Avenue is on the left, forming the border of buildings

Is it just me or does the painting look more like Charles Manson than Jesus?

This was defaced a few years back. A volunteer fixed it up and added Divine in her red dress, now standing next to Betty
