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."

My feeling is that for the next year or so it is going to be a Don McCullin year in photography. Like in years past it was a Winogrand year or Leiter or Meier etc. There's a movie in the works based in his autobiography: https://www.theguardian.com/film/201...r-don-mccullin .

If I was that photographer, I would've told Mr. McCullin to do a self-portrait if it bothers him that much and then I would've packed up and gone home.

Yep, it would be very unprofessional of me but I take the view that If I'm the one doing the pics, I'm the one to decide how I do them.

Doesn't stop be me being a talentless bozo though.
