Statement by Tom Warren from the portfolio                 Reverse side of photos have Warren’s rubber stamp and photo lab notations that identify the sitter.

In the early 1980s, photographer Tom Warren created an itinerant Portrait Studio that he moved from ABC No Rio in the Lower East Side,  to Fashion Moda in the South Bronx, and other locations.  The goal was to allow neighborhood people to purchase high quality pictures at a bargain price while simultaneously Warren assembled a collection of neighborhood portraits for himself.  “Ddisillusioned by street photography’s impersonal and false nature,” Warren understood that he could obtain more truthful likenesses by setting up a studio situation where sitters were posing for themselves.   Many of the artists that Warren knew from COLAB also sat for their portrait and over the years he amassed a large collection of COLAB portraits.   Warren has selected some of his favorites for this portfolio.  All of these are made from the original negatives and the complete set comes with a handmade paper folio with a title page
