The essence of this work is collected in my book,
Personal Journalism: A Decade of Color Photography, 1980-1990.
In the introduction to the book, Ernst Haas
wrote, "To capture, within a moment, the essence of [New York's]
tragic comedy needs a heart, a soul, and a well-reacting trigger
finger . . . The pictures of Todd Weinstein prove he possesses these."
In 1980, I established the Union Square Gallery
as an artist-run exhibition space dedicated to presenting both emerging
and known artists, in various media. The gallery presented scores
of shows and served as a social and artistic nexus for an ever-growing
community of photographers and artists. Although I raised money
from community sponsors, the gallery was primarily funded through
my own resources. In a celebration of the gallery's tenth and final
year, Gregg Masters in a profile of the gallery, wrote, "The
longevity of the gallery is a result of Todd Weinstein's devotion
to championing work that is beautiful and tough, searching and personal."
