John Szarkowski 1925-2007

Checking in from the boonies I was saddened to see that John Szarkowski died this past weekend (I know he had a stroke earlier this year, but he appeared to be recovering).

Over the last few years John had been very generous to me with his encouragement and constructive criticism about my work and I will always value my correspondence with him - especially, but not only, his humour.

A massive influence on twentieth century photography, as well as a personal influnce.

He will be sadly missed

It’s impossible to talk about the photography and forget great John Szarkowski .

He will be truly missed...
