All the News That Fits Into a Size Seven and a Quarter Hat


Palm Springs Photo Festival

Prologue:  I returned home this past Saturday from spending almost a week at the Palm Springs Photo Festival. On Sunday morning I began putting together this blog posting, gathering together photos and writing lively stories of the wonderful events, the funny mis-haps and the good times, hanging around with new and old friends and colleagues. But by the time mid afternoon came on Sunday, everything had turned around as I heard the news that one of my oldest friends, my former business partner, my drummer and the closest I’ve ever had to a brother had died just a few hours earlier.

I will write about Larry Weinberg in a few days, but I post these images here, with no words for your viewing pleasure. Just enjoy them and realize how things can change so very fast.

Grab hold of someone today. Hug and kiss them and don’t let them go for a few minutes…or many many years. – Norman Maslov, May 6, 2013


Five days at the Palm Springs Photo Festival.

What’s all this?

MANHATTMAN is hosted by Norman Maslov, whose Agence Internationale, represents a small group of wonderful photographers. This blog showcases images from these artists along with scribes about music, films, food, gin martinis and hats. Pontifications from a native San Franciscan and his extended family and friends. So it goes.
