Issue No. 35

  1. Internet Interaction

    Sean Ross, an American transplanted to New Zealand and a pro-traditionalist, had a hard time connecting with like-minded enthusiasts, so he launched a website catering to “analog” photographers.

  2. Art Shay

    This spry octogenarian can look back on a life in photography full of extraordinary experiences and accomplishments. Shooting for LIFE in the late 1940s, and later for all the famous picture magazines of the day, he is responsible for many of our most well-known icon images.

  3. Michal Chelbin

    Like fairy tales, her images transport their viewers to a world of childlike enchantment, one that is comfortably familiar yet filled with dark wonder and mystery.

  4. Kent Bowser

    He was always drawn to sacred places, first documenting Indian burial mounds in Ohio before travel-ing to the Yucatan as well as the Hebrides and Orkney Islands in search of places held holy by indigenous people. Eventually moving to Santa Fe, from where he could easily visit and revisit the isolated northwest corner of New Mexico, he found his own “sacred place.“

  5. Cissy Spindler

    She sees photographs all around her—hidden in cracks on the sidewalk, floating in the surface of a storm puddle…

  6. Harvey Stein

    A photographer for over four decades—with several books and numerous exhibitions to his credit—he has lately explored a new way of making portraits.

  7. Brenda Corbin

    Moving to Montana, her creative spirit was rejuvenated by the spectacular vistas surrounding her.

  8. Craig McMaster

    This “Ansel Adams of Scotland” braves the wilderness of his native land to capture the scenes before his inner eye.

  9. Diane Bruno

    Moved by the architectural elements of the city—skyscrapers in light and shadow, angled facades in conflict, geometric patterns of windows—she uses a handheld pin-hole camera as the interpreter of what she sees.

  10. Mark Howell

    He started out as a poet, but stopped writing, feeling exhausted from too much looking inward. Photography enables him to look outside of himself.

  11. Leslie Rosenthal

    She thinks of herself as a student in the “Cartier-Bresson school of photography”—part journalist, part documentarian, part reporter.
