Evidence (In Memoriam Larry Sultan)

I was saddened to see the notice of the death of Larry Sultan. He was the co-creator of an exhibition and book titled Evidence back in 1977. I bought the book and was among many who were influenced by it. Occasionally I find a photograph reminiscent of those he and Mike Mandel selected for their project, and I've posted here about it before. My discovery of that book at that time was one of those moments in life that looms even larger in retrospect. Thanks, Larry.

  1. I read the notice today too. I have not seen the book and now I really must. I still can't figure out why those companies would just hand over those photographs. Sultan and Mandel must have had some sort of charisma.
