Gene's over the road from you?
Maybe it was him who was printing Salgado's negatives the other day! :-) 
He's had a few famous clients including teaching / printing for His Royal
Highness the Duke of York, or 'Randy Andy' as he's better known...
I enjoy Don's later work very much, his Wiltshire landscapes were ignored by
most of the media here but I love them, a deep sense of mood pervades them,
darkness and dismality but with enough light to express hope too.
There's a story of him involved with a TV photoseries we did here some years
ago where the BBC photographer/printer was trying to obtain the look he used
in his pictures when she printed up the shots from his day out on location
Eventually she found the look by overexposing the print and 'snatching' them
from the developer! Seems hard to believe but that's the story...
