(It's true.) Michael E. Reali is a fervent photographer, intermittent painter, incidental mosaicist, desultory traveler, casual gourmand, and practiced chef who once spent a night trapped on a mountainside in Greece with a bull. A native of Philadelphia, his work can be seen on murals throughout the city as well as in the book Old Man Drinks, an assignment that landed him much acclaim and a stint at Betty Ford. Mr. Reali possesses a degree in fine art as well as an extra bit of pancreas, making him a curiosity of modern medicine. All of Mr. Reali's proceeds from this book will go to his favorite charity- The Feed Mike Reali Fund.
