    Peter Gowland is 90...??? Wow! I've always admired both his photography and his cameras. I too would love to get my hands on a Gowlandflex or, even one of his 4x5 pocket views. Good stuff. Thanks for the link David.

    When I was a teenage photography student (in the 70's) I wanted to grow up to be Peter Gowland - mainly so I could meet the models. Yep, THAT worked out real well for me. I still enjoy his work more than any of the modern photographers that show more and say less. I guess I'm just an old fashioned boy...

    There's a lot of us still out here.
    Remember when nude and glamour used to have mystery and tittilation- before Hustler?

    True they have gotten more honest (airbrushless), but the "in your face" crotch
    shots loose appeal after their novelty wears thin.

    So he's 90, healthy, and still shooting beautiful naked women? Lucky Bastard
