This set on photographers is a different kind of animal from all the other collections I’ve made.
First off, I’ve been shooting these for almost sixty years, but I wasn’t really conscious of them as a category or “thing” until a few years ago.
It’s different in other ways too. The pictures were hiding from me as I searched for them, and dozen of images have still not been found. Maybe at a later date.
It is unusual for me to crop pictures, very rare, but in this collection I have cropped out people, enlarged the part I wanted, and so have joined those who “manipulate” their images.
Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.
There were criteria for inclusion in here: First, I had to have met you; second, I had to have photographed you, and lastly, I had to be able to find the damned picture. If you’re not here, it’s about me, not you. If your’e in here, thanks and I appreciate your time.
