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.
