 JEFF HIRSCH - EPISODE 15

"A lot of my thanks have to go to Bob (Fishkin) because he was in many ways a surrogate father figure to me besides my own dad, because he offered me opportunities that no one else had before."

Kai and Michael visit Jeff Hirsch at his famed camera store, Foto Care in NYC. Jeff lays out the storied history of Foto Care from its start as the Underground Gallery on 10th Street where Duane Michals had his first solo exhibition to being one of the few camera stores left in New York that still takes pride in having relationships with and being supportive of photographers. Jeff started out as a photographer and discovered, while working at Fishkin Brothers in New Jersey, that he had a talent for solving problems for other photographers.
