Bill Evans
The genial Bill Evans, now about 90, the best shine in the city from the lobby of the headquarters of People's United Bank Downtown. Another Misencik photo classic.

Misencik is pure genius. He’s captured an assortment of characters, neighborhoods and city destinations for decades. Photos in this exhibit will include people from the Misencik Main Street Collection, clients of the Merton House, the Palace & Majestic Theatres, and Bridgeport building exteriors. Misencik and Geralene Valentine, the holistic health practitioner, have teamed up through the years to produce an amazing array of images, with a Zen quality that places subjects at ease.

  1. The photo of Mr. Evans is a classic. This gentlemanly icon has been a fixture in downtown Bridgeport for over 40 years. In recognition of his importance to the recent history of Bridgeport, People’s Bank has accommodated him with a stand in the lobby of their building.
    Kudos to People’s Bank!!!
