    This week saw the passing of one of the great photographers, Rene Burri. I was fortunate enough to meet him twice and will always remember his kindness and generous spirit. Truly one of the greats. Even if you're not familiar with his name, I'm sure you would have seen some of his work!

    On a happier note, Steidl have announced the re-issue of Cartier Bresson's seminal work "The Decisive Moment". Finally, a chance to pick up a copy for less than $1000!

    Thanks for this thread. You always seem to mention interesting photographers in your posts, many of whom I wasn't aware of before. Love threads that highlight photography rather than gear. Thanks for sharing :)

    Photographers over gear. A rare thing intend. After all we would all be top photographers if we had the right gear wouldn't we?
