Merg Ross in LensWork #93
Yes, I am posting this myself. I do so simply to suggest that LensWork is a worthy publication for those with an interest in fine art photography. Too much time is spent on debates of process, digital versus gelatin. In the end, it is the vision that plays the major role, not the process.
I can assure you that all of my images presented in this issue, as well as those made over the past six decades, originated on film and are gelatin silver prints. Brooks Jensen of LensWork, made the scans for this issue from my gelatin prints.
Please take a look, and for those familair with my work, there are some recent additions in Portfolio #8 on my website.
I enjoyed both the photographs and the interview. I am looking forward to hear you when the extended version of #93 arrives. I must also give a shout out to the Jimmy Williams photographs (one of our local photographers) for some really great black and white portrait work.
#93 is a very good issue.
Congratulations and thanks for the heads-up. I guess I need to resurrect my LensWork subscription.
Joe, thank you.

You may know that my audio interview with Brooks is now available on line from LensWork for less than a dollar; I hope you find it interesting. Be forewarned, it runs an hour!

I loved your work Merg in both Lenswork and your website. Your work is not new to me as I have enjoyed it over many years.
Ah to be able to spend an afternoon with you .......
When people such as yourself are gone we as a photographic community will have lost all connection to the founders of the West Coast photographic movement.
In the mean time we are blessed with your presence and admirable willingness to share.
Was thinking the same thing.. I'd love to go shooting with this guy! Merg, perhaps a workshop is in order? I've been looking for a reason to take a trip out west and that just might do it.
