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."

Good Bye Jim -

I feel so lucky to have met and spent time with Jim. He was gracious and generous towards me. His work influenced and inspired me from the begining. His statement of "...it's either art, or it's crap." has always stuck with me.

He will be missed.

I've only seen interviews, but this guy had as much of an in-your-face attitude as Jagger ever did. It showed in his images. For his place and time, he was it. I see so much of the 1960s through his eyes.
