fototazo has asked a group of 50 curators, gallery owners, blog writers, photographers, academics and others actively engaged in photography to pick two photographers that deserve (more) recognition - the underknown, the under-respected as well as not-appreciated-enough favorites. A little more information on the project is available in the first post in the series here.
We began the series with responses from Nicholas Nixon, Matt Johnston, Blake Andrews, John Edwin Mason, Aline Smithson, Colin Pantall, Michael Werner and Liza Fetissova. Today we continue with selections from Laurence Salzmann and Bryan Formhals.
Respondent: Laurence Salzmann is a Philadelphia-based documentary photographer and filmmaker. Among many other collections, his work is in the Philadelphia Museum of Art, International Center of Photography, George Pompidou Center in Paris, Brooklyn Museum of Art and Yale University. He is the recipient of a Fulbright Fellowship to Romania as well as a Pew Fellowship. His book "The Last Jews of Radauti" is available here.
