...Note the two matching exclamation points in the post title.
As you probably know, our friend Peter Turnley is one of two identical twin brothers, both of whom are eminent photojournalists. I met Turnley twin David for the first time only recently, thanks to old buddy Steve Rosenblum.
One big difference is that David has never had a print sale...until right now. Perhaps inspired by brother Peter's sale (which has been extended to Dec. 5th), David Turnley is having his first-ever print sale. Here's the link.
Okay, now, big point coming up, so listen to Mikey: even if you have no interest whatsoever in buying a print of any type or size or style, I recommend going to David's link and spending some time looking at his pictures as a portfolio for delectation and enjoyment. Click on the first one to enlarge it and then scroll through. An exceptional 40-print group, and no less worthy than Peter's work. I really and truly enjoyed spending time with this group of photographs. I think you will too.
(Thanks to David and Peter Turnley)
P.S. And if you're looking for an eye- and mind-sharpening activity, try the Thomas Hoving exercise: pick your three favorites.

David Kieltyka: "Great to see this! I became aware of David's work before I knew he had a twin brother who also was a photographer. 8^) It was David's South Africa photos, particularly from the 1980s (Apartheid era), that had an impact on me. I'd see them in newspapers and magazines and, impressed, began actively seeking them out. David brought out a book on the subject c. 1988, and around that time I attended a wonderful talk/discussion in the Detroit area led by him. He signed copies of the book as well. All the heavy hitters in Detroit photojournalism at the time turned out, which further livened up and enriched the discussion. A great time was had!"
