    A local great photographer, Ron Wohlauer, passed on Mar 13. He was a great teacher and photographer. I can't find a lot of his stuff online, here's an article from the westword about him... http://www.westword.com/issues/2004-09-16/art.html and one from the Rocky Mountain News... http://www.rockymountainnews.com/drm...157586,00.html

    It has been a sad year for photography. -Grant

    what it means though is time for all of us who love photography to aspire to those greats and be great in our own lifetimes.

    beautiful works are something that can inspire us all.

    It is interesting that most of these greats were born in the 1920s and matured in the incredible changing world of the 1940s and the boom of the 1950s.

    It seems that during times of great transition and upheaval great people emerge.

    During times of stagnation or peace (for lack of a better term) we see less of this.

    Since the late 1960s and early 1970s was also a time of transition I guess we should expect a new crop of wisdom and talent to soon take the place of these greats.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    Eriwin and Peggy Bauer both died within about a week of each other this year, Erwin was considered the father of modern wildlife photography and did many books on the subject during the 50's and 60's as well as worked on the Mututal of Omaha's Wildkinddom TV show and had many essays pubished in National Geographic over the last 40 years. Peggy who had been married to him for many years was also a great outdoors photographer in her own right, and took over the family business when Erwin could not do the stills anylonger, he did the video and Peggy continued on with the still photography.

    So, I think the "greats" were true to their visions, once their visions no longer sucked. Ralph Barker 12/2004

    It was not until I read this thread today that I knew that Jack Leigh had passed on last year. As a long time admirer of this Georgia native son I was fortunate to have met Jack and visited with him several times when ever I could find him in his gallery in Savannah. I have most of his books signed by him and one also by James Dickey.

    For an in depth report about Jack, go here
