dear John,
you have not only been an inspiration to me but also essential in the progress of my career. When I saw the images for your show at the Monroe Gallery I was so impressed by some of the work that I had not seen for some time and it really hit home what a great photographer you are.

You will get through this and move on because you have a dominant, or should I say Dominis, sprit

MUCH LOVE and Thanks for all that you have given to me and to so many others. Steve Schapiro
