    I see in the NY Times tonight that Jack Perkins passed away. I saw him on one of Kevin’s videos of the Palouse a couple of years back. He was a great reporter and an avid photographer. From his obit, “Mr. Perkins said in a 2012 interview. “Say less, mean more. If a story is dramatic, you don’t have to tell it dramatically. Be simple. Direct.” I think that this can also apply to photographic vision. I will miss him.

    Oh my, I didn’t know.  He was truly a special man.  He was old school journalism and a great writer.  His voice was so distinct.  I had lots of laughs with Jack as we trudged around many a wilderness with Micahel Reichmann looking for the shot that was never there.  A few years ago I met up with him in Florida and we had a day at a nature preserve photographing birds.  So sad.  I’ll have to look up the family and send condolences. Thanks for letting us know Jeff.
