Memorial Day – Harry Smith’s Birthday

Harry Smith‘s birthday today, born in Portland, Oregon, May 29, 1923.

Allen certainly admired, and took a great many pictures of Harry (more indeed than almost any other subject).  Here is just a sampling of a few of them, various locations, but mostly in Allen’s kitchen, East 12th Street NYC, 1984-1989.
