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."

Thanks for posting this, john.
Haven't heard of KH for many years.
I do recall reading he had been asked how he got close candids even with a then exotic 20mm lens.
He said something to the effect:
"I act boring. I dress boring. After a while people don't notice I'm there."
