    One thing about AA which classifies him as a genius, is that he realized that he is only a link in the chain and that others will come to surpass his accomplishments. In fact he always encouraged it of his students do try to do so.

    I found out that my good friend and mentor, Carroll Siskind, died 4 years ago. His was the photo teacher at Monmouth College, NJ in the late 1970's and was my main influence for getting me into photography. His work is not well known yet he did one series on manaquins that is sensational. He also did street and fashion photography that rivals any master.
    Time & tides wait for no one, especially photographers.

    This thread makes a case for self portraits. A poor substitute for life (for the individual, at least) but in any case, more than just the evidence left by our mortal residue.

    Dean - the problem I find with my self portraits is they actually look like me Even I'm not so evil as to leave that kind of residue to future viewers.

    In spite of all the terrible horrors, many good things came out of the enormous effort we remember as WWII.

    Commercial advertising photography as we know it, was created in the 50's almost exclusively by photographers who were trained by the US Government or were members of the allied forces.

    It is rumored that the formula for Ektachrome itself was "liberated" from the German scientists at Agfa after their surrender. Before the war there was only Kodachrome.

    The time has come for all of these marvelous players to return to The Father.

    I swear though, it seems like the true masters are all going away leaving us with little in their wake.

    Add one more name to the list: George Silk died over the weekend. He was one of the great Life magazine photographers who covered WWII, and a lot of sports. He was at the Battle of the Bulge.

    Maybe the on-slaught of the digitial age has something to do with it?
