I also really like Robert Bechtel. Technically he isn't a photographer, I guess, but the effect is pretty much the same. The technique is mindboggling.

Good call on Koudelka (his stuff with an X-pan from the last ten or so years has been mindblowing) and Kratochvil

I went to the first VII workshop in Boston earlier this year and Antonin is crazy. I got to be in a group discussion with Antonin and Joachim, and the two just talked shit to eachother the entire time. It was hilarious to listen to Antonin bash Joachim for starting the new dainish photojournalism trend.

Great work:

Sarno-

It was the first workshop held by the members of VII. It was in Boston earlier this year, end of april i think. I went there with some fellow students from school.

The entire gang was there, Greenfield, Morris, Boulat, etc.

They showed lots of work, discussed current and future problems in photojournalism, answered hundreds of questions, and made themselves available for group discussion. It was a fabulous experince, other then the fact i practically slept through the entire set of presentations the first day due to driving all night from Kentucky.

If there is ever one even remotely close to you i would reccomend it greatly.

Anyone else thinking about going to the Atlanta Photojournalism seminar on dec. 2nd and 3rd?
