Photographs are truly “Time Machines”
I’ve been fortunate in being able to photograph
the same people after a period of years.
Seeing the changes (side by side) that years bring
has always fascinated me.
A Note About My Father: Maurice Seymour
Actually, there were two Maurice Seymours. The brothers Maurice Zeldman and Seymour Zeldman came to Chicago from Russia in 1920. After working for a few years for Bloom’s Studios in the State-Lake Building (“Bloom was the Maurice Seymour of his day,” says Maurice), they launched their own studio in 1929 atop the St. Clair Hotel (now called the Inn of Chicago) on Ohio Street.
