ABOUT Anthony Buccino

Nutley, New Jersey, author Anthony Buccino's stories of the 1960s, transit coverage and other writings earned four Society of Professional Journalists Excellence in Journalism awards. The Pushcart Prize-nominated writer published several collections of essays, photography, military history, and verse.

Buccino's latest photo collections include Harrison Next, Gas Stations, In Our Old Kitchen, and Old Spices. And don't miss New Orleans in Plain View, Jersey City Snapshots, Nutley Snapshots in Plain View, and New York City Snapshots in Plain View. His photo prints were included in exhibits at the Alfa Art Gallery, the Caldwell Public Library, and a solo artist exhibit at the Nutley Public Library.

Buccino first wrote rock and roll record reviews for local newspapers - Bloomfield, Glen Ridge and Nutley - in the 1970s. He was communications director at national and state trade associations, and editor of a food trade monthly. He made a career in writing and editing including a 12-year stint with Dow Jones Newswires and The Wall Street Journal.


Artist's Statement

Photography is a fun challenge. It challenges me to stop and see the world, and to try to capture what I see so you can see it, too. Sometimes I set out to shoot something specific. Other times I am called to a scene that says ‘shoot ME’. My journalism background -- shooting photos for my stories -- continues to influence my view of the world and the world I see through the camera lens.

When I consider the thousands of digital photographs I have stored and backed up on various hard drives and clouds, I realize that when I am gone someone will come along, trash the hard drives and toss this old PC and all will be gone with me. Except for my books which may be available forever.
