Ray Simone

  I have been a professional photographer for over 20 years,  shooting fashion throughout NYC and product photography.

  I have been collecting original vintage photographs since I was 10 years old and when I started shooting professionally I decided to start collecting original camera negatives. I'd search the city far and wide for them. 6th ave between 14 & 34th streets was a treasure trove before the 1990's came along. There were many empty parking lots on weekends where people would be selling everything you can imagine, but to me, my eye was focused on negatives.

  One day about 10 years ago after cleaning up my photo studio I decided to start to retouch & restore those negatives and make fine art prints.

  All my prints come from the original camera negative and are printed at the highest HD possible on the finest fine art paper available.
