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."

Karsh Portrait Collection at the Brigham's (Boston)


I was at Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston yesterday and happened to come across these wonderful Karsh “Healers of Our Age” portraits along the Neeson Pike (2nd floor). Stunningly beautiful! The lighting and attention to detail is exquisite. I've never seen B&W images this large! I understand one of his techniques was to light the hands of his subjects separately from the head/face area.

I saw the recent PBS Documentary on Karsh and am making a date to go see more of his work at the Armenian Museum of America in Watertown, MA.
