My Dad's newest book (post mortem..... which he dedicated MOST of his life putting together until the day he died). I think he would be very pleased that it is finally out! :)
A release of the facsimile of W. Eugene Smith’s informally titled “Big Book,” which sometimes paired iconic images with family snapshots, invites a reassessment of the photographer as artist.

The cold is creeping closer & closer. A thick haze covers the sky. I think I live in a snow globe with settled snow & thick layer of calcium adhered to the globe. Maybe the outside is just filthy & needs a good scrub-a-dub-dub with a wild & windy thunder & lightning SNOW storm!
