Anguish and Joy–George Romero

As a journalist on a movie set you have a license to observe and report. What I found interesting was the mood swings that are cause by events. In this image, the Director, George Romero and Director of Photography (DP) Michael Gornick were trying to figure out how to deal with the reflections from the fountain. The two shots were taken seconds apart on the set of Dawn of the Dead at Monroeville Mall in 1978.. You can buy a print of this image at my commercial gallery by clicking here.

  1. It amazes me how many people were impacted by this movie. I have sold over 75 prints of these images on line, by far my biggest sellers, Apparently the film was banned in the UK and people have written to me telling me what they had to go through to actually see it.

    George Romero is very soft spoken and a really nice guy, the exact opposite of the movie’s producer Richard Rubinstein who is a colossal asshole. I don’t know if you are aware there is a documentary in the works entitled, DEAD ON, which is about the life of George Romero. A lot of my images will be in the movie which is being made by Chicago Film Maker Rusty Nails. Thanks for the nice comments and stay tuned, I will keep posting more on my blog.
