SHADES OF ISSHINRYU

Art Smiley

TAIRAGAWA DEMO 1957

My friend Art Smiley at an outside demo.

It was Art who introduced me to Sensei. The photos at this site and in my albums are a result of a joint deal regarding costs and development between Art and me.  Without Art there probably never would have been photos but by the same token he could never had afforded the material and developing and film alone.

Art actually got the photography bug while on Okinawa. He waited tables until he joined the service. You could say that Okinawa gave us both a calling, him to photography, me to karate.
