Steven Schonfeld became interested
in photography at the age of 13 after seeing
the movie "Blow-Up". He set up a dark room
at home in a large basement closet and
started photographing his neighborhood
of Sheepshead Bay and Manhatten Beach.
He was particularly interested in street
"Most people were very receptive to having
a young teenager take their picture.
I now concentrate on travel and fine art
photography. I like trying to capture the
subtle things that reflect the essence of
a person or place. I believe I was drawn
to radiology from my love of photography
as both have obvious visual similarities."
