In our travels through the
land of photography we spend a fair amount of our time talking with
folks who spend a fair amount of their time in darkrooms. And each one

Since 1991 Monte graced the pages of our magazine, inspiring us to be the best we can. He loved life, and lived it to its fullest. Monte's mission was...

First, let me state that I currently shoot the majority of my wedding photos with a Bronica SQ-Ai medium format 6x6 camera. I use Kodak Portra 400VC 220 film (I like the extra snap in the contrast). It's fast enough for 90 percent of the...

"I fully expect to hear someday that Bradford Washburn has visited the moon, climbed Copernicus, and photographed the lunar Apennines from a private, orbiting module. You recognize the explorer in Brad at first sight. His photographs look almost inevitable, perfectly composed. These are not simply documents of wilderness; we sense in each one the presence of an individual...

It was the most bizarre sight that a professional photographer had ever seen. When 44-year-old Alexander Gardner got to the Federal Navy Yard in Brooklyn on the morning of April 26, 1865, he found all of his photographic subjects had their heads covered with canvas hoods. Even more bizarrely, it was the Federal government that had sent him there, to photograph for history the...
