Hi all,
I'd like to introduce the work of James Whitlow delano, an American based in Tokyo. He shoots primarily with Leica rangefinders and hand prints all his work in a very distinctive way then posts it on the web. Please look at his China, Japan, Cambodia and Burma work in particular.
There is a luminous quality to his stuff that is quite extraordinary.
I met James once and aassisted him while he shot some available light portraits of our company president, using a Hasselblad and 2 or 3 lenses.
Please let me know what you think...
Francis

good stuff, especially his bw, wish the images were a wee bit bigger. I also like the design of his website, at times some go overboard with the fancy multimedia stuff which make the browsing cumbersome, this one is pretty well done.

Je suis vraiment impressionné par son travail. J'ai d'abord pensé qu'il s'agissait d'un fond de vieilles photos avant de lire ta note. Je lis toujours les notes après :)

Je vais me le garder en favori et aller le revoir de temps à autre. J'ai trouvé comme Homerhomer que les photos étaient peut-être trop petites (question de protection des droits ?) et que les détails, même souvent flous, avaient sans doutes leur importance.

Merci pou ce lien.
