Brooklyn born Henry A. "Hank" Waxman, has been a photographer all of his life, but he has always earned his livelihood in other areas. He is the President of MM Reserves, Ltd., a small management consulting firm specializing in the marketing and general management needs of mid-sized companies. He specializes in socially responsible organizations, startups and turnarounds. He has recently finished serving as acting president of an alternate energy company. The son of a part-time professional portrait photographer, Hank's introduction to the world behind the camera came at his father's side in their basement darkroom. He was allowed to tend the chemicals and watch in awe as his father took blank sheets of paper and turned them into heirlooms. A home-made print box for producing contact prints, and access to a vast inventory of negatives substituted for a playpen, but inevitably accelerated to ownership of his first twin-lens reflex camera: a plastic Kodak model. After college Hank pursued a career in business: first as an employee of a Fortune 100 international corporation, and then as an entrepreneur, and his camera work was limited to pictures of his family and their vacations. The revolution in photography caused by digital photography was the impetus behind Hank's return to photography as an art. He could once again nurse the image from the moment of the shutter click to the printed page. Hank's images are strong; with bold color and shadows creating compositions rich with sculpted forms and dramatic impact.

Hank Waxman's conversations

I visited this place as a small child in the early 1960's. At that time you could still tour some of the caves, I believe. I see that you commented that "McKenna's Gold" was not filmed here. After seeing it and also having toured Canyon de Chelly, Canyon del Muerte, Mesa Verde, Chaco Canyon and many more smaller ruins, I assumed it was filmed here. Was it filmed at the White House (?) Ruins at Canyon de Chelly? Just curious, if you happen to know. They made it look incredibly high. I was always fascinated by these dwellings. A guide at Mesa Verde was a Ute Indian and insisted that the Anasazi didn't disappear, they just changed neighborhoods and that his people knew that the cliff-dwellings were there former homes. I didn't have a firm explanation for why they abandoned them, but said that it was probably drought or starvation or both. Sorry for rambling on so long, this just brings back lots of memories.

Thanks Don, for the comment, and for stopping by. I'm glad that you like this one. Best personal regards, Hank
