MAJOR BODY OF B&W WORK FOUND AT A FURNITURE AUCTION IN CHICAGO

The work of Vivian Maier, 1926-2009, was discovered when negatives, prints and undeveloped film were purchased at an auction. THIS IS A MAJOR DISCOVERY OF BRILLIANT STREET PHOTOGRAPHY, BY A LITTLE-KNOWN ARTIST. And it is square-format TLR work, which we love. See it in all its glory HERE

“I took your picture with my trusty Rolleiflex;

And now all I have developed is a complex” -- DESAFINADO -- ANTONIO CARLOS JOBIM

CALLING ALL SQUARE-FORMAT B&W PHOTOGRAPHERS... WE WANT TO SEE YOUR WORK! (DON’T DEVELOP ONLY A COMPLEX!)

NEW: Fabio Cremasco is a 29-year-old photographer from Rome, Italy, who switched from digital to film about three years ago. He says he’s “a film enthusiast/envangelist.”

Some major B&W stories:  1.)  Supercell storms in B&W - see them here;  2.) Leica opening hundreds of Apple-like boutique stores -- see it here;  3)  Leica has a new, B&W-only digital rangefinder M-series camera. Seriously -- See it here.  4.)
