The Kodachrome Colorists

There are four photographers, who, in my early days, greatly influenced me.  All shot Kodachrome and exploited/explored the limits of the film with primary colors.

They were: Ernst Haas, Jay Maisel, Eric Meola and the great Pete Turner.

Pete Tuner passed away on September 18th, at home in Long Island, New York.

Pete's "Road Song" photograph has stuck with me for years. If I recall the story properly, he was flying into a large midwestern city and saw this fence from the airplane.  He found the fence and made this photograph.

His photographs influenced generations of photographers including Eric Meola (his former assistant), Arthur Meyerson and Gregory Heisler.

Interesting podcast/interview with Pete.
