Our Debt to John Szarkowski

There is an excellent article written by Sean O’Hagan on John Szarkowski on the front page of the Guardian’s Photography section right now.  It is kind of old news, being published on 20th of July and I should have posted a link sooner, but it is better late than never.  Anyone with a deep appreciation of the artistic merits of photography owes Mr. Szarkowski the world.  Contemporary photography would be decades behind where it is had it not been for his keen insights and tireless work.  Read O’Hagan’s excellent tribute after the jump.
