    Moderator's Note--Since we now know who the perpetrator of these images is, I've moved it to the "Photographers" forum and added his name to the title of the item.

    gandolfi? any of our Scandanvian friends? Can you tell us more?

    I know him as one of the many (!) talented press photographers we danes seem to have, due to an exceptional good education (or some say)..

    I am not sure whether he is free lance now or still connected to one of our news papers.
    I'll find out..

    DANES RULES!!

    Hi Bob,

    Thanks for your mail -
    Like you guys I still shoot analog. mostly that is -
    I use mainly Leica M6 cameras with 28/35/50 mm. lenses
    the film I use are Ilford xp2 plus, it`s a BW film developed c-41
    shooting color I use Fuji.
    hope it answers your questions -
    please feel free to contact me if you have further questions.

    all the best

    Jan Grarup
    Funny he says that. The first thing that hit me when i opened his page, except for lots of good images, was that he must be using leica m About film I was more unsure. Not very strange since I've never used any c41 bw films. At some images I would have thought tri-x but the tonality combined with little grain (even for small pictures), particularly in peoples faces, just wasn't the tri-x look.

    True true,
    I have noticed that there are many good press photographers from Denmark.

    Claus Bjørn Larsen is also one of them:
    Some images here http://www.leica-camera.com/kultur/l...1/index_e.html

    and a portrait of him here http://www.worldpressphoto.nl/index....ery&Itemid=115

    and yes, he is using a leica m

    What image are you referring to? There are so many that I can't pick one that reminds me of the Steerage.

    Newsweek Nov 28, 2005 pp 34-35.

    This is just my impression but think of that plank and the mass of humanity as filtered through Gilliam's visual exaggeration. For what it's worth, Steerage does nothing for me, and Jan's picture is magic.

    On the other hand, my mind seems to have played me false. I remember people on the plank in the famous Stieglitz picture, whereas in fact there are none. Oh well; I used to have a brain that worked.

    Jan Grarup is featured in a book called "pludselig i verdensklasse" "suddenly worldclass"
    about the Danish photographers Claus Bjørn Larsen, Jan Grarup, Jan Dagø, Tine Harden, Joachim Ladefoged, Nicolai Fuglsig, who all won international prizes. At the time it was released, in the late 90ies or early this century I think, they all worked with film and, as stated, some of them still do. All I can say is that their work is very inspiring to me.
