    View Camera Magazine - What Would You Like To See?

    View Camera has had some excellent articles throughout the years. I could see it as value added to occassionally re-publish some of the gems of the past. In fact, having a whole issue on gems would be neat. That's an issue I would purchase.

    I realize that some people may have saved older issues, and may already have some or these articles. At the same time, I'm sure that View Camera has many new subscribers in recent years, for whom these articles would also be new.

    How about a two year running series profiling those who are dedicated to teaching large format or serious "vision" oriented photography , not just the technical and copy cat stuff, around the world. break the US up in to sections: East, South, Soththwest, West Coast, Midwest. then Europe and then Asia.

    How about a piece on Robert Adams?

    What is Nicholas Nixon up to?

    How about a piece on Joel Meyerwitz's World Trade Center project?



    Is there any humor in large format photography?

    Very interesting to compare the above comments with this same discussion from last March:

    Excellent suggestions so far. How about one devoted to hand held LF?

    John Paul Caponigro and Abigail Foerstner are two of the best photography writers and interviewers. please retain their services and contributions. why we do what we do is as important as how we do it. I would like to see a departure from the landscape crowds and more focus on using large-format in unconventional ways by unconventional artists.

    Having thought about it overnight, I finally realized that the most important thing about photography -- good pictures -- are often missing from the magazine. Often it's possible to go from cover to cover without seeing anything original or profound, or even beautiful, including in the many advertisements. That should be the primary purpose of the magazine, namely showing us great images unique to LF. Everything else is secondary.

    I have been a subscriber to vc since the third issue and immediatly bought the first two issues but in the last couple of years there have been less issues with articles I enjoy. I keep my subscribtion up so I don't miss something. I guess there is only so much you can say about traditional large format photography. William Blunt

    Steve- First, let me applaud you for asking. You have received many good suggestions in response. From them I assume your readership is relatively young or at least in terms of experience with large format. I, on the other hand, have been involved for many years so my comments come from that background. I would like to see the work of young photographers, or at least lesser known photographers, not the same old dinosaurs.

    The product reviews and technical articles relating to large format are good. But please, could you scrap the digital stuff? A magazine already exists devoted exclusively to that subject. Thanks again for asking.

    Regards, Merg Ross

    Steve Dan Smith's comments has my vote. I couldn't say it any better.
