    B&W in the latest issue of Newsweek

    There is some beautiful B&W work in the latest edition of Newsweek in its "1000 Words" feature. They really shows the power of B&W photography to concentrate the image and stealing someone's signature here, remove the the distracting color.

    A long time ago I was reading Newsweek (I think) in a waiting room and I noticed the black and white images were vignetted. I thought they looked like Holga images. I did a bit of googling and found the artists' email and contacted him and sure enough! It was indeed shot entirely with a Holga all black and white. I think it was David Michael Kennedy but it's been awhile. It's nice to see black and white used to it's full power.

    Those were probably David Burnett. He did some great Holga stuff while following the Gore campaign. Since then, he's been seen often with a Speed Graphic and an Aero Ektar.

    I'm really sorry I didn't name the photographer and now I'm at work and my Mag is at home. It wasn't Burnett, the first name was "Jan" I'll find it.

    I didn't mean in the current issue, but the Holga shots that Surly mentions from a while back were probably David Burnett.

    The Photographer whose B&W pics from the Pakistani quake zone is Jan Grarup. I'd love to know what he used.

    I found THIS on Jan Grarup. His web site is also listed. Couldn't find out what he used. I saw the photos too and they stand out.

    Warning, his web site loads a large intro screen...

    Thanks John! I visited his site and after figureing out how the heck to navigate it (Note to artists: Lose the over designed websites!) He's Danish and quite well known. I sent him an e-mail telling him about APUG and asking about his cameras, film etc.

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

    Oh my goodness.

    That first image is completely overpowering. I think of "The Steerage" as reinterpreted by Terry Gilliam. That's just amazing stuff.
