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."

Blake was also: https://rangefinderforum.com/forums/member.php?u=31751

The thread here: https://rangefinderforum.com/forums/...d.php?t=108786 was what got us talking.

I also miss him more than I can describe, even though we never met.
