Peter Urban, photographer and friend
Wednesday, September 16, 2009
Arlette Kafayas, whose gallery on Harrison Avenue in the South End represents Peter’s work, said this about him: “Peter’s enthusiasm for life, his love for his friends, his energy for his community are all part of what made him a remarkable human being. Knowing Peter was a gift--being with Peter energized your life.”
When Peter first learned he had pancreatic cancer, he told me he and Patrick Swayze had something in common. Now, sadly, they continue to. I will continue to picture his smile, to hear his laugh and to wish we could meet for another lunch.
