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."

"Bill Cunningham lived like a monk: His bed was a piece of plywood with a mattress that sat atop file boxes filled with photos and negatives."



What they left out is the studio/apartment he lived in was one the studios that use to exist on top of Carnegee Hall.

Both the documentary about him and the documentary Lost Bohemia are well worth watching.

Apparently he used a Nikon DSLR in his later years, according to this article. But before that he used a manual focus film SLR, a FM2 Nikon. So, I like him
