The woman with me in the Norton photos is the Brazilian photographer and artist Alba Vasconcelos. We met in her hometown of Salvador, Bahia, in 1983. In the ’50s, Alba's father had a 250cc BSA, then an Indian Chief. She joined me in Mill Valley, California, my hometown, where we worked for a couple of years, always photography. In 1985 we married and, at 32, I left my studio in Sausalito and adventured to South America.
