mus-mus @Paris : Results announced

The team at mus-mus has just announced the results of @Paris, their second on-line collaborative show. 122 invited and selected photographers are part of this show.

The members of the jury for this year's competition were Denise Wolff who recently left Phaidon to become Book Editor at the Aperture Foundation, well known photographer and promoter of color photography Stephen Shore, and photographer Gil Blank.

I am happy to say that the photo I submitted is included in the final selection.

I am doubly happy to find myself in the company of photographers whose work I admire such as Magnum photographer Alec Soth, Beth Dow , Brian Ulrich, Shane Lavalette , Stephen Shore and Corinne Vionnet.

Thanks to the mus-mus Team and congratulations to the selected photographers.

Return to film for landscapes

I have neglected using film for my landscape photography recently. I find the 35mm too confining and the 4X5 too cumbersome and too heavy to walk around with. With the arrival of the new Bessa III folding camera, I think I have found a happy medium. Here are some of the first shots I have taken with this medium format camera:
