Karen Halverson – Mulholland

Review by Wayne Swanson • It starts a ways up Pacific Coast Highway from Malibu and ends 50 miles to the east, a bit past the HOLLYWOOD sign.

No matter your age or era, if you’ve... Continue Reading →

Vasco Trancoso – 99

Review by Gerhard Clausing • No doubt street photography can benefit from some creative new approaches. Gone are the days of garnering attention by showing the ubiquitous downtrodden and certain other predictable scenarios that we have seen many times before.
