As a young Journal-News photog in 1966, I went to an assignment in Suffern and began to set up my shot when a woman with a cultured voice said, “Well, we were expecting Mr. Inglese.” By then, even with just a few years on the job in Rockland though with long experience in Westchester County, Warren Inglese was a well-respected photographic artist whose composition and print-making were spectacular. His measured approach to photography, using correct lighting, balancing the pose and eliciting the right expressions, made him a fine studio man. But he also excelled in spot news, such as his compelling coverage of the March 1972 Congers bus/train crash in which five Nyack High School students perished. Warren had a long career and, it seems, an enjoyable retirement, continuing his artistic life all those seasons. May he rest in peace.
