Next Up

I once visited photographer Maureen Lambray in her New York City studio soon after she completed work on The American Film Directors. She told me that she was fascinated with cinema because it is an art form that began not too long before she herself was born, and that many of its pioneers like Raoul Walsh, Howard Hawks, and Fritz Lang were still alive (then) for her to talk with and photograph.

Digital photography today is still very much in its infancy. Many of the pioneers who will be revered 20 years from now are still unknowns today. You have a remarkable opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a new and growing technology that will change the way we produce and use images. The Fritz Langs and Alfred Eisenstadts of digital imaging are out there working right now. (Actually, as I write this, immortal photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson, born in 1908, appears to be immortal, as he is still alive and working.) Don’t miss this chance to pattern your work after these legends of the future, or perhaps even become one of those leading lights yourself.
