Last year I had the privilege of scanning and restoring around 70 photographic prints from Tony’s art exhibits from 1999 and 2000. There are many wonderful prints in this collection. Here are a dozen of my personal favorites. He was not only a masterful mime but a talented and unique visual artist as well!
