A Harlem Native, I began taking photos of people at work in the 80’s. This evolved into getting gigs for parties, weddings, etc. and developing a love for taking pictures. For walking the streets of Harlem shooting in the 80s, the Brownstone’s were always an attraction. While still doing jobs I became more interested in photography as an art form. After showing my work of “Browntones” to an artist friend, I was encouraged to start exhibiting. After my first exhibit where pieces were sold, it was off to the races. You should not only see images..you should feel them, was my credo.
I have exhibited at various venues, was photographer for Harlem Torch Magazine, and am currently a photo contributor to Harlem World Magazine. A member of National Conference of Artists, Harlem Arts Alliance, Upper Westside Arts Coalition, and the Harlem Arts Alliance Visionaries. Currently Photographer/Contributor for Harlem World Magazine, with a section titled “Rudy’s World”
