A portrait! What could be more simple and more complex,
more obvious and more profound.
Morris “Uncle Morrie” Manzo
Manzo Brothers High Stall, 1975
I believe he was market patriarch Socio Manzo’s younger brother but I’m not certain. He was “Uncle Morrie” to the new generation of the market families.
He was a quiet, soft-spoken, grandfatherly man with a smile and, in season, a fresh berry for any kid who walked by.
This is 1 of 30 prints in a new portfolio named "The Face of the Market". It is portraits and memories of Seattle's public market.
There will be more information on this portfolio -- and (I hope) a major remodeling of my website for February.
