My friend Karen Miller sent me a note today about Jack Gilbert’s death this past Sunday.  The time I spent with him is among my most cherished memories as a photographer.  He was an amazing man and poet, and I feel so lucky to have met him.  Here’s a link to one of his poems.

Another amazing person I photographed for Poets & Writers was Jack Gilbert.  He grew up in Pittsburgh so we talked alot about Western Pennsylvania.  Along with Franz Wright, he was one of the most interesting and provocative people I have ever spent time with.  He talked about love, art, and success and told me wild stories about his life.
