The Photojournalist's Coffee House

In 1994, John launched his first web site - the Photojournalist's Coffee House. Today it is a bit of a relic from the past, but still quite interesting and worth checking out. At the coffee house you will find a photo documentary on a homeless community in Covington, Kentucky and photo essays on carnival workers in Ohio, the clown alley of the Clyde Beatty Cole Brothers circus and a homeless couple living on the banks of the Hudson River in Jersey City.
