To say that 2009 has been hard on the photography community is an understatement. We've lost Irving Penn, Evelyn Hofer, Hellen Levitt, Luke Smalley, Julius Shulman and Polaroid. And now I'm sadden to hear of Larry Sultan's death. I was not a dedicated follower of his later work, but his 1992 Pictures From Home body of work was very influential to me.
May he rest in peace and may his work continue to inspire young photographers around the world. He has set the bar high has left incomparable images with us.
