Some of his past contributions may be found here and here.
Thank you my friend.
I hope this message finds you and your family well in such strange times.
As for me, due to some less than pleasant personal circumstances, I have moved back to the US to live for the first time in 16 years, and while the move wasn’t really preferred or expected, I have embraced it as an opportunity to take a new look at the country through eyes, ears and tastebuds, and of course also through camera (the Monochrom).
That being said, before setting off for North America, I was able to sneak in a short photographic trip to Crete, which I had never before visited and was an appropriate destination for more reasons than one in terms of helping me fight some personal demons. It was a satisfying way to say a temporary farewell to a beautiful continent, the fourth on which I have lived and worked.
If you would be so kind, I would welcome the opportunity to show these to your readers (and fellow photographers):
Most important of all, stay safe and keep shooting……. photography is a wonderful tonic for staying sane these days.

One thought on “Guest Post: Aaron C Greenman”
Thank you Aaron. These images express the humanity of the moment and are street photography at its best. Just wonderful! They epitomize two favorite Robert Frank quotes: “When people look at my pictures, I want them to feel the way they do when they want to read a line of a poem twice” and “Black and white are the colors of photography. To me these symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.”
