Boston Art Photos

Here are some of my "art" photos, taken in 1977 & '78 while in Boston studying photography.
I had a small darkroom in my tiny apartment on 217 Kelton St. and I slept on on "loft" bed right above it. The photos are not in sequential order, but I am putting a caption on these.
These were scanned from 5x7 black & white prints and reduced 25% before posting them here.
