Harry Lunn: Father of the market for fine-art photography. (1981)

Friends

WORK IN PROGRESS

I have photographed thousands of people, most becoming life-long friends, all of them stand the separation of time, distance, choice, or in death because of the photograph. They are enshrined by the blink of a camera's eye, providing a reference, a road-map and a testament to Living Art.

It is a formidable task to edit over half-a-million pictures, scan the negatives or slides and then find words. This collection is just the beginning, a "friends in progress," to be continued and updated. Drop me a note if I've photographed you; click the "like" button or comment as a vote to expedite the completion of a specific friend.
