Neal Menschel

Neal Menschel in his studio in Menlo Park

What a pleasure it was to meet and photograph acclaimed photojournalist Neal Menschel for InMenlo. His studio was a minimalist’s nirvana, white walls, lots of natural light and a wall of wires with clothes pins. Anyone who has hung up wet prints from the darkroom will recognize these. He is doing so much I love to do. He teaches, has photographed all over the world and loves projects. His comments about the depth you get in photographs in a project is so true. Projects are so good for finding subtle wrinkles in an established thought or prejudice.

Neal had a chair in the studio with a pillow that read “When was the last time you did something for the first time.” Words to live by and words he has obviously taken to heart.
