Thank you so much, Merg. That means a great deal to me. I am a big fan of your work (and stories!)

For me, nothing quite compares to the intimacy of small, jewel like prints.

Best.
Shawn

I took a look at your new work, and some old. You have a very fine portfolio accumulated over a few years. Congratulations! I bet those contact prints are real gems. My early work, the first ten years, were all 4x5 contact prints. The small prints demand a close look. I have never understood the big print craze so often seen these days. I guess ink made it easier to go big, although Ansel was printing large in the 1950's; some mural size on commercial assignments. Of course, his subject matter did not suffer from being large.

Almost had forgotten the LensWork interview, glad you found something worthwhile in it.

Keep in touch.

Best,
Merg
