  1. Congrats on the by-lined article on Very interesting, especially the early photographers.

    1. Thank you, Lindaloo! I enjoyed researching and writing it. There were a few others that I wanted to include (Walker Evans, Warhol, Robert Mapplethorpe), but the image permissions were too complicated/costly. Oh well.
