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."

I hadn't been explicitly aware of Jim Marshall until The Online Photographer linked to his obit, and Ctein et al. posted reminiscences. Prompted to investigate, I finally knew who had created all those great, iconic images of the last 4 decades. Does it make sense to mourn the loss of someone unknown until he's gone? Dunno, but it seems I do.

I just got Jim Marshall's wonderful first book "Not Fade Away", and it makes me want more.

Requiescat in pace.
