This weekend I went to Photo LA and, among all the various images I saw, one photographer stuck in my mind. Pentti Sammallahti is a Finnish photographer who works exclusively in B&W and creates these marvelously quiet scenes. His latest retrospective book “Here Far Away”, is currently out of print, but the nice folks at Photo Eye tell me that there is a 3rd printing in the works. Check him out. Nice stuff and good inspiration for us all.
