    Muench's black and white images appear to have been printed with very strong contrast. (I've only ever seen reproductions, but some of those are in his book with Mark). I remember being surprised by that, but allowed that it was certainly a different look from other photographers of that era who were photographing similar scenes. In the book I have, several of the b and w scenes are also presented in color....work I assume he did later...and they work far better that way, at least for me.

    It is a treat to see his work in VC and I welcome it however often it appears.

    To paraphrase: "I still believe a single sheet of 4x5 film with an ability to capture 1.5 Gb of info is tough to beat - and you don't need an extra 2 people to carry the hundred pounds of equipment."

    I find myself agreeing with him for LF work. The practical efficiency, cost effectiveness and simple performance of film over digital backs makes better sense at this time (imho).
    I agree perfectly. While I have been a fan of David Muench's work for years, I find myself more in tune with Jack Dykinga - and Joe Cornish, for that matter. Jack's latest book "Arizona" is outstanding!!. FWIW, here is a link to an article that Jack Dykinga wrote for Arizona Highways magazine: Don’t Confuse Resolution With Quality by Jack Dykinga

    I'm glad to see David's work. I hope VC publishes more landscape work.
