In 1970, Ed Gallucci was a cab driver in New York. He was also a photographer, snapping pictures of life in the city.
On Friday, an exhibit of his work, "Frames Between Fares," opens at the O. Winston Link Museum in Roanoke.
"One of my photographs is a picture of Japanese tourists being photographed by another Japanese tourist on the Staten Island Ferry," Gallucci said in an interview. "In the background you could see the World Trade Center being built. It's not complete yet," Gallucci told us. "And unfortunately I was in the city on 9/11 and it meant a lot to me to find that photograph."
Gallucci moved to Roanoke a year and half ago, after a long and successful career as a commercial photographer in New York.
His work has appeared in many national magazines. He photographed more than 40 Newsweek covers. And he was one of the first photographers to document the rise of musician Bruce Springsteen.
Gallucci once worked in the same building as Winston Link, and says he considers it an honor to exhibit his work in the museum that now honors Link's photography.
