This assignment was to photograph my friend Steven Katzman's home for a magazine article. Steven is a self-taught photographer who has combined, over the years his long-time interest in political science with his photographic journey. Although he does not work from anyone’s theories on the appropriate direction for contemporary art, most of his photographs exemplify the post modernist notion that to be relevant to the final quarter of the 20th century, art needs to be political in nature. Steven is, however, an artist, not a propagandist. Consequently, his images are not overtly political: the viewer must take time to think about each photograph to arrive at its ultimate message. The home is full of not only Stevens work but other significant artists as well.
