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."

Indeed! A well written article.

Robert Frank spoke at the Cantor Museum (Stanford University) a couple of years ago. I believe he'd just turned 90. It was a fascinating talk by the man who's photo book turned my head way, way back in 1968 when I was a freshman in high school...

A friend and I went to his show at SFMOMA a few years back. They had some of his negatives and contact sheets. 767 rolls of film: yikes ($4441.00 today).

I don't know about changing America though.

Thanks for the heads up. What a great article. I knew the book was not a great success at first but didn't know how much venom was directed toward it, by people who should have known better. Truth hurts I guess.

As far as I know the book was designed and edited by Robert Delpire, who also produced some books by Cartier-Bresson. Delpire must have been very young at that time. (1958)
