Photogs / Photo Exhibits This is the place to discuss a particular Photographer (work, style, life, whatever), as well as to post Gallery and Museum Photo Exhibitions and your own impressions of them. As we march on in this new digital world, it is often too easy to forget about the visual importance of the photographic print, as well as their financial importance to the photographer. It is also interesting to remember that some guy named Gene Smith shot with lenses that many lens test reading "never had a picture published in their life" amateurs would turn up their their noses at, as being "unacceptable."

Sad News. Stanley Greene has died.

One of the greatest photojournalists. I knew him only for the Chechnya work, but as the NY Times obit shows, he was so much more.

I didn't know he was in Russian White House at the same time I worked nearby and conflict happened. My respect to him.

In Black Passport, Greene, quoting Alexey Brodovitch, likened the life of a war photographer to that of a butterfly. “[If] we’re lucky it can last for eight years,” he wrote. “I think you can only keep positive for eight years. If you stay at it longer than that, you turn… I see it in myself, and I see it in all my friends and colleagues. We are all victims of post-traumatic stress and deal with it in different ways. And we’re not beautiful butterflies anymore. We’ve become moths. And what a moth does, it flies into the flame.”

The Online Photographer has just posted an interesting commentary by Jim Hughes about the intersection between Greene and Gene Smith, including an excerpt from his Smith biography that was edited out at the time (presumably for length reasons):
