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."

Thanks very much for that post, FPjohn. I enjoyed the pictures, several of which I hadn't seen before.

AND, it led me to this article: "Why Did Garry Winogrand Photograph That?" about Geoff Dyer's new book on Winogrand. That article also contained many intriguing photos.

I hope this web address for the Dyer / Winogrand piece works.

I read this article and a few others. He used an unusual camera, something that you would not think a 'street photographer' would use. Thanks for posting the story of this unusual artist.
