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."

THank you Helen, for sharing. I loved seeing these few images and will look for more. Wyman's use of low angle even the portrait of the Girl in Curlers is poignant. Also the picture of Elizabeth Taylor reminds me of that wonderful A PLace in the Sun....I'm overdue to watch that one again!

Good stuff, thanks Helen. Googling her name brings some really nice photos from that era.

Thanks for the link.

I like all the photos but especially the one of James Cagney. Beautiful set up, the phone, lights and fog, his costume and the gun as a prop.

Info on the movie, “White Heat”


You’re helping me learn about photography as an art.

I make photographs as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone.
