    “Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”

    Maybe with O'Sullivan in the west. I know it would NOT be with Capa in the landing craft on d-day.

    I'd wander around great spruce head island for a day with Eliot Porter. Some soft portraits with Hurrell would be interesting too.
