Great question, Traamis, I've just started a new thread for legacy lens discussions: Legacy lenses - what is it about these lenses that makes you want to use them? so we can continue the conversation there.

From Tbilisi the website of local photographer Gia Chkhatarashvili. Don't worry if you can't pronounce it.
Have a look at his series on Ushguli (the highest village in Europe in the NW of Georgia where he has been returning year after year for 20 years to shoot), his village portraits and his landscapes (one of which is currently on its way to me to hang on the wall).

Thanks Olli. What a fantastic series of portraits, and some of the village series made me think of Eugene Smith. Wonderful B&W.

Flare Magazine is currently running a series on the top ten German photographers under 30. Some fabulous images.

Wyman Meinzer the state photographer of Texas. The guy knows how to take some cool shots. The night pics he takes where he "paints" the buildings with his spotlights are just breathtaking.

I woke up to find an email from my daughter with James Nachtwey's website sent as a link. She wanted me to look at his photographs. I began with his home page which has a quotation and then a listing of headings on the left. As I clicked through them, I knew I was looking at images I would never forget. Afterwards, I read his biography. Here is the Home page link: James Natchwey's website: James Nachtwey
"I have been a witness, and these pictures are
my testimony. The events I have recorded should
not be forgotten and must not be repeated."

I was blown away the first time I saw Nachtwey's images. But what changed my life - literally!! - is watching Christian Frei's documentary on him called "The War Photographer". For those who have not seen it, well I cannot recommend it highly enough! Be warned some scenes are gruesome and others horrific, but well worth the overall feeling and appreciation you walk away with.

Out of the sites mentioned Nachtwey's really caught my eye, some of his photos are incredibly touching.
A blog that I recently visited is Ashwin Rao's Life at Shutter Speed - I just love his post processing (beautiful colours) and photography style (kind of street/candid) Ashwin Rao's Blog - A life at shutter speed
