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."

I saw this exhibit, 'Radical Camera' last week. I recommend it highly, particulary for those not familar with the NY Photo League. Many fine images exhibited together with a lucid description of the challenges faced by its members.

I saw the exhibit about a month ago. Definitely worth seeing. I expect to be "surprised" tomorrow with a copy of the catalogue beneath my Xmas/Hanukkah bush. Not are the images powerful, but the explanations on the wall cards help to put the whole milieu into its proper social/historical context.

Excellent exhibit - I saw it two weeks ago. Catalog looks good, but stay away from the book "After Weegee" which a boring academic exploration of modern several photographers - I can barely read two pages before my eyelids get heavy and close.
