My Very First Photos,
Dec. 1960, Feb. 1961,

  I received a Kodak Brownie camera from my parents for Christmas 1960. I was nine years old. Although I do not have all the original negatives, I do have most of my original prints. I do not believe the photos in this group are great, but they are significant because they are the first photographs I ever shot. Looking back, I realize I always photographed people. I did not go out and shoot buildings or scenic shots - I almost always photographed people - even at nine years old.

This is only one of two photos that I could find from my first roll of film from December 1960. It appears that my father Philip Gangi Sr. is carving a turkey.
