    Chuck Fishman is a photojournalist, whom I know of from his photographs of Polish Jews, which he printed as a portfolio in 1975, but he's also done work on jazz in New Orleans and other subjects. He just posted a photo of himself on facebook with 120-odd rolls of Tri-X 35mm sitting on a table from his most recent trip to Poland, this time looking at the revival of Polish Jewish culture, which has been happening since 1989, so there's more analogue work to come.

    Thanks for posting this David. I was just looking at the essay on Polish Jews -- truly amazing photographs.

    What do you know, I met the man in person at a film screening last night. We'd recognized each other from facebook and talked for quite a bit after the film. He says he has hundreds of contact sheets from the 1970s and 80s in Poland. I may get a look at them.
