    I saw an exhibition of his work in MOMA a few years ago and loved it. But this http://masters-of-photography.com/A/...rnal_full.html is my absolute favorite photo of his. I stood transfixed in front of it for about half an hour! At last I tore myself away and viewed the rest of the exhibition, then returned to this one to stare at it some more. I had what I call an epiphanic experience; that is, I was absolutely transfixed by a work of art.
    When my wife dragged me out of the exhibit hall, we went to the MOMA bookshop where I found and purchased the book from the exhibition.

    I first saw his work in person here at the Norton Simon Museum. Great stuff! His ex wife Lola Alvarez Bravo wasn't so bad either!

    How cool, Eddy. That is the exact image that captured me as well. Do you know if it is still at the MOMA? I would probably take the train to N.Y., just to see it up close. What size is it? I wish I could find a print of this image to hang at home. It reminds me of Goya.

    I don't think so; that was several years ago, and it was a special exhibition of his work. They may still have the exhibition book available, though. It was beautifully printed, and shows every print in the exhibition.
