    I want to see this so bad it makes me ache. I thought about making the trip down to DC to see this until I learned it was coming up here.

    One of my favorite places to look at the work of contemporary photographers is the Gallery Showcase at Photo-Eye Gallery:

    http://photoeye.com/Gallery/photosho...epagePSNew.cfm

    One of my favorites is the portfolio of John Chervinsky.

    His conceptual still lifes are thought provoking and fascinating in the objects used and their composition. They remind me somewhat of of Joseph Cornell's boxes:

    Thanks for this. I look at the Photo-Eye bookstore often, and used to like the periodical, but I must have overlooked the gallery. What a find.

    Did anyone mention Burn Magazine? http://www.burnmagazine.org/ It's a David Alan Harvey project.

    Thank you, Jim, I find this work to be highly fascinating and had never seen it before!

    Thanks for the heads up on Burn Magazine.

    Susan Burnstine is a photographer who I return to from time to time. Most of her work is done with homemade cameras and various toy cameras or combinations of the two.

    I especially enjoy the animal portraits in the portfolio titled Instinct.

    The one that really has me excited lately is Fan Ho:

    Amazing work.

    The other photographer I've looked at lately is Keith Carter. Again, lovely work, but distinctly different take.

    I first saw Fan Ho's work in an issue of B&W Magazine. He has an incredible eye for balance and composition, light and shadow. That cohesion of elements and viewpoint reminds me a lot of Andre Kertesz.

    Take time to look at the whole portfolio of work presented. This work is a great example of someone who truly has the gift to make magic with a camera.

    I just saw the show by Fan Ho in Palo Alto at Modernbook Gallery, wonderful work. He had an artist talk which was fun and he described how his cropping and re-cropping was like movie editing (he is a film director). I enjoyed how the pictures are all different sizes and shapes and tones. Some of the pictures are only about 3cm square. He described how he would shoot in Hong Kong, waiting for the right light and background. Following people and sometimes getting into trouble. He is still enthusiastic about photography at 77 years old. Yes, his pictures are magical!
