Our friend Peter Turnley* is being featured at the Lens blog of the New York Times website today, along with a nice article by Jesse Newman. (At the link, be sure to click the "Full Screen" tab to view the pictures.)
The article itself appears in conjunction with a new show in Paris, "La Condition Humaine" (The Human Condition), at the Galerie Agathe Gaillard, the 12 Sept, 3 rue du Pont Louis-Philippe, Paris 75004. The exhibit will be up for one month.
I'm pleased that so many TOP readers own orginal signed Turnley prints (and that some of those who attended Peter's Paris workshops also know Agathe).
*Whose pictures of 9/11 are here, apropos the anniversary yesterday.

Featured Comment by Jlsalvignol: "I must confess that I discovered Pete photos in TOP prints sales. I had already noticed the rigor of its perfect framing, although they are still of a great lightness. I could not imagine how it is also an implacable witness to our time. The photos of Pete combine beautifully a great elegance with sometimes the harshest realism. And they always avoids the compassionate exhibitionism that often dominates the contemporary aesthetic."
[Ed. Note: I have not edited this comment's grammar because I feel it has an integrity and a dignity that might go missing if it were rendered in S.E. Sometimes, one can feel the original language "standing behind" imperfect translations, which imparts to the ideas a freshness they might not have if they were more idiomatic and conventionally proper. That said, try reading the comment again....]
