Time Warp: The Greatest Cult Films of All Time

In 1979 I went on one of my last photographic assignments for Pittsburgh Magzine. You can read all about it in Zombie Nights: My Two Nights with the Living Dead.
The behind the scenes images of this cult film have been well appreciated by fans of the movie, Dawn of The Dead. They are now about to get a broader audience. I have licensed some of the images to be used in the upcoming Showtime mini series, Time Warp: The Greatest Cult Films of All Times.

I have seen the teaser reel and it contains great interviews with Pam Grier, Jeff Bridges, Sean Young, Rob Zombie and hundreds of others. The episodes are finished and they are working of a distribution deal. This is one of the images they will use.

Halloween at The Phipps

Pittsburgh is a special Halloween town. Halloween was always special here but after the Night of The Living Dead it all changed. The Phipps conservatory has made Halloween a big part of their Fall Flower Show. We enjoyed it last week and wanted to share some images from the show.

Zombie Week Day 3— David Emge and Mike Gornick

This was one of the two images used by Pittsburgh Magazine in their story about Dawn of The Dead, the other being a shot of George Romero, I believe they chose this image because it had one of the stars of the movie and the camera in the same shot. The technical part of film making was not as well understood back then and this 16mm Arriflex looked pathetically small compared to the 35mm cameras we were used to seeing.

Zombie Week Day 2—Jeannie Jefferies

Jeannie was hard to miss on the set at Monroeville Mall A beautiful woman with big hair and a dazzling smile. I was not supposed to talk to the cast or crew but she was too dazzling to not acknowledge. I always wished I had the opportunity to photograph her in my studio.

Zombie Week Day 1—George Romero

I often wondered how many more pictures I would have taken if I had a digital cameras in 1978. I was on location two nights and took a roll of transparency film and two rolls of Tri-X pan film. I only needed 2 pictures for Pittsburgh Magazine and took a total of 78 images. I bought and developed my own film and I was pretty poor back then so I just took my time and got what I needed. Today on such an assignment I would take thousands of images.

These two images were taken seconds apart and captured the anguish and joy of directing a movie. I like these the best but they weren’t used in the Magazine.
