Photo: Stephan Russenschuck - Reno La pass in Nepal, at 5360 m, looking across the Gokyo valley towards (from far left to right) Makalu 8481 m, Mt Everest 8848 m, Lhotse 8516 m and Nuptse 7861 m. Taken with the 4x5 view camera (Linhof Technikardan) on the Fujicolor Pro 160s. Film scanned on a drum scanner.
Stephan Russenschuck has recently opened his website http://srussenschuck.com/
Those who had the opportunity to meet Stephan, and follow one of his presentations at Photo Club CERN know what we are talking about: true Fine Art Photography.
In one of his presentations, he gave a definition of an outstanding photo. I think that this was one of the best practical definitions of photography I ever heard: "A photo is outstanding when there are people willing to spend time and money for quality printing and framing for display in a prominent place of their home for the next 10 years."
