His work was some of the best.... RIP

From June 1955 thru the spring of 1956, for a period of nine months, Robert Frank had driven over 10,000 miles across more than 30 states [out of a total of 48]. In all, he had taken 27,000 photographs. When he returned to New York in 1956, he whittled those images down to 1,000 large prints. He tacked and stapled the photos around his apartment like wallpaper. After four months, he chose just 83 of them for his book, "The Americans".

Saw "The Americans" years ago in San Francisco

Best photo exhibit I've ever seen.  Great subjects/images, of course, but the technical aspects and printing were also superb.

A bad day for photography

We also lost Fred Herzog yesterday, an early pioneer in the use of color. A bad day for photography.

Remember him, and stay remember Anthony bourdain

To many great people leave us.
For example Anthony Bourdain, a great personality.

Why succesfull people have hidden problems, and do not talk.
As we lent an ear, maybe we can keep them up the rails.

Enjoy beautifull watches, race nice exotic sportscars, and enjoy nature wildness.
