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."

Sad news.

He went into combat with my Dad's Marine Division during the Korean War and photographed some of the fiercest fighting. And he outlived my Dad by almost 50 years.

Will drink a toast to him tonight.

Thanks for sharing.

Best,
-Tim

As a WWII Marine and later LIFE photographer, he is one of my heroes. He was the only Marine photographer on the MISSOURI for the Japanese surrender. There is a great interview (video) with him on the Nikon website about putting Nikon lenses on his Leica's for covering the Korean War. His photos in LIFE made Nikon optics famous. Here is the link to the Nikon video.

it's fair to say that without DDD the japanese optic industry won't get this far. he is sort of a catalyst for that when he "discovered" Nikon

This is my tribute camera to DDD. A Leica IIIc with first batch Nikkor-SC 5cm f1.4 lens. He mentions in the back of "This Is War" which pictures he took with this combo.



Best,
-Tim

Here is the NY Times obituary. It refers to his Leica and Nikkor setup, but note the picture at the top of the obit shows him with a Leicaflex.

It's one thing to live to 102. But to live to that age, after having lived such an amazing life like that.
Wow.
