  1. Amazing awesome work. Lou!!!!!! I am Juan Uribe, I was your student at SU during the early 80’s. I always think of you as a pillar of my inspiration of the visual world. You taught how to “look” at Photos. I also remember the camping trips in October to upstate. Marty’s tavern and the horse? remember. I am now a filmmaker living in CA. COngratulations on the first class artist you are. The work is amazing. THanks for everything you did about 35 years ago.
