If it wasn't for the structure of some of the shadows I'd readily assume the candle was the only light source. Despite my suspicions this is a wonderful portrait filled with a tradesman like characteristic and a devotee of his skill.

What a great touch for nostalgia! and yes this is wonderful portrait work! Seems this photo will be saying something to us (human) in all times... So meaningful too. Thank you, Blessing and Happiness, nia

I met Stan Bevington when I lived in Toronto in '69 and '70. He always made us (artists) feel at home at the Coach House Press. Minor caption correction: the machine he is sitting in front of is a Linotype typesetting machine, not a lithographic printing press. I visit your website often, thanks for doing what you do.

terrific capture of both the man and the machine. love the lighting. can almost hear the melodies of keys clicking, wheels whirling and lead falling into place as the type is set. just seeing the linotype machine makes my heart go pitter patter.
