    Pirkle Jones

    One of the great photographers of the twentieth century, Pirkle Jones, died recently at the age of 95. He was Ansel Adams' assistant at one time and was a truly marvelous b&w printer. Much of his best known work was of the Black Panthers during the 1960's.

    A Google search will reveal considerable information including an obituary which appeared in the NY Times; additionally half a page in the LA Times was devoted to him several days ago. His work is available in Aperture and several other publications. It is well worth viewing.

    The same age as Helen Levitt. Here's a link to a piece on Mike Johnston's blog entry on Pirkle Jones, with further links to other related sites--

    I know this is an old post, but I met him in Santa Barbara about 2000. He is a very cool dude
    for an old timer. and changed the way I see.
