    Peter Gowland exhibition ended 1/29/17

    NSFW USA

    The Peter Gowland website is back up and vastly improved. https://www.petergowland.com/

    Exhibition listed http://zephyr-mannheim.com/peter-gowland-en

    Very glad to see the new website, dated 2016, it's been a while since I looked it up.

    I got to speak with Peter several times over the phone.
    He was very generous with his knowledge.
    It's good to see his website back up!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Peter made some spectacular images, but its a shame the photos on the web site are such tiny representations of the work. With some of the work, there's also a lot of JPG compression - you can barely see whats in the images, let alone actually appreciate the content.

    Yes it is. Too bad I don't see his price sheets which were great for seeing options.

    I know I printed them, but I am real bad at filing. They are somewhere inside 100+ boxes from my recent move.

    I see at this page bottom 5 Gowland threads from 2006 to 2010. They are before my time here, I'm off to read them.

    I just ordered from the website a book of 330 of Peter Gowland's best.

    Very affordable.

    If you visit the website, be sure to look at the "War Years" photos. In many respects, those photos demonstrate his skill as a photographer beyond the pinup glamour.

    I have a 1989 brochure from him. I have to see if I can dig it out and scan it.

    I am so very glad that I've held onto my 4X5 Gowland Pocket-View camera! As I've gotten older I've grown to truly appreciate its combination of appropriate functionality with back-saving light weight! Thank you Peter!

    I have the 2X3 Pocket-View and a 4X5 Gowlandflex, which I cannot find right now...

    USPS just delivered the Peter Gowland 330 Best Poses. It's NOS from his stash I suppose. Peter writes in first person. Not a reproduction.

    Glad to add it to my coffee table.

    Kinda cool his legacy lives on and his heirs can make a sale now and then. Reminds me of the same type 'inheritance' that Packard Shutter Co provides.
