Growing up near New York City, Frank Calabritto was in awe of the cubist swath the city’s skyline cut and its massive influence on international culture from a young age. Although initially drawn into a corporate life, he broke free to follow the siren call of the metropolitan images he saw coming out of the city. He began aiming his lens at everything from the frocks at New York Fashion Week to the pensive faces of policymakers such as Liberian president Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and Melinda Gates at the Clinton Global Initiative. Now, 10 years into his career, he takes breaks from photojournalism with portraiture and wedding photography. Whether focusing on the sweat on a politician’s brow or the dimples of a child, Calabritto believes that every click of his shutter is the chance to create a message and carry an emotion beyond a fleeting moment and into the future. This passion for communication helps him craft photographs more than ready to fill photo albums or pamphlets for supercomputers learning to feel.
Instead of allowing photographs to crumble and filmstrips to gather dust, the staff of Reel-to-Reel Video rescues precious memories by converting outdated media to DVDs replete with custom menus and easy-to-navigate chapters. The process is simple: Customers go online and order a shipping label to be sent via email or regular mail. Once it arrives, they fill a secure package or load a bodybuilding carrier pigeon with old film, slides, tapes, and photographs. Back at their lab, technicians repair broken film and add music to silent strips at no extra cost, returning all the original materials with the DVDs.
