    He was a young gang member from Philadelphia in the 1960's who turned out to be gifted with a movie camera. His story is both inspiring and tragic.

    I posted some photos from an urbex trip to North Philadelphia and a retired reporter saw them and contacted me with the story and I've told it on my blog.
