*Any serious students of photography should visit Larry Fink’s new website at  www.larryfinkphotography.com .  It felt like an online retrospective show that I attended in my pajamas . . . and you thought only Julian Schnabel could get away with that!

On a sad note, one of the masters of the medium, Roy DeCarava, passed away on October 28th.  His book the “Sweet Fly Paper of Life” about everyday life in Harlem in the 50’s had a great impact on me. The book was produced in collaboration with the ‘Shakespeare of Harlem’,  Langston Hughes.

To become a better photographer, study their work.   ‘An artist who has not mastered the tradition cannot be truly innovative’. (T.S. Eliot)
