Alan Weinschel | About
Photography has been in my life for more than 50 years, having received a camera (a Samoca 35) as a thirteenth birthday present. I took some basic classes in college but have no formal training. My equipment has ranged from simple to complex, from film to digital now, but throughout I look for the nonobvious in everyday things and for that spark in people. I am now all digital, using mostly Leica cameras.

Some of my work hangs at my law firm where it has had to pass muster with a fairly sophisticated art committee. Some hangs in private homes. The Yankee Stadium photograph is hanging in the Yogi Berra Museum and Learning Center at Montclair State College in Montclair, New Jersey, and a copy is in the photographic archives of the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY.  I have exhibited at local shows in New York, and in May 2016 had a one man show at the Tamarkin Gallery in Chicago.

I hope you enjoy looking at these images as much as I enjoyed making them,
