Big Sky Country, The Big Muddy, Big Bad John, and, of course, The Big Kahuna

Like many photographers, my first "serious" camera was a 35mm SLR. And while my original rationale for choosing it (portability, number of exposures, large selection of lenses and accessories) proved sound, it wasn't long before I...

Some images are remote and poetic. Others are majestic and dramatic. All represent a fixed and silent moment in the personal vision of photographer Franklin B. Way. In Way's photographs I am reminded of Alfred Stieglitz's words...

As is our wont, in this issue we asked our contributors to give us their thoughts on what the future holds, be it gear, technology, or trends in photography. We received a wide range of opinions, from those proclaiming that film is finally dead to those who see diversity in image making as important. There's no doubt that many people still use and enjoy working with film.

Each year at this time we ask our contributors to give us their forecast for the coming year in photography. While some of their predictions are, well, predictable, a few surprised me with their call for a return to film. This is not mere Luddite doggerel. Clearly digital has changed the way we all operate these days, but there are some lingering doubts about how viable the medium...

Each year we ask our contributors to pitch in on their take on what’s in store for photographers and photography in the year and years ahead. Most base their assumptions on bits and pieces of news and technological advancements that happen to rise above the din and onrush of digital developments.

If you've glanced at the photos and you're not laughing, you might think about skipping ahead to the next story. On these pages we're going to spend some time in the bemusement park that's the mind of Chip Simons, and if the weird light he's shining into the darkness didn't bring at least a smile, you're probably not going to enjoy the...

There's a place on earth where time stands still. A place where a reverence for nature and the Buddhist religion have preserved a kingdom that is often referred to as the world's last Shangri-la. A mythical and medieval land hidden high away in the Himalayas--an Eden called Bhutan.

In early 2004 I was hired by Yarkay Tours to...

It's a sign of the times, I guess. Digital imaging is no longer a novelty; it's a popular way that many people, amateurs and pros alike, capture images. Reflecting this, 2004 is a banner year for digital imaging books with the best variety, content, and even prices I've seen in recent years. This year's collection includes books aimed at specific...

I 've always loved books. The most exciting day of my life was when Sister Mary Anthony took St. Catherine of Sienna's second grade class on a field trip to a library. Baltimore's Enoch Pratt Free Library was the first public library in America and although this branch, just...
