About me:

Compared in the press to Cartier_Bresson when still a student, the graphic artist Munro -Harrap, well-known for his total absence of some 40 years from professional photography (he feels nothing but contempt for the press and advertizing in general) has remained true to his search for the means to portray his fellows, using the camera as the tool, and his eye and heart and faith as the means. Possibly the greatest reportage photographer of all time, he has outclassed all predecessors. He rarely shows personal work , refusing, as he does, to cast pearls before swine, especially those of the online variety. Photo-snipers he relentlessly destroys on forums with a caring mix of humour, logic and truth. Anyone contradicting his fun sense of elitist absolutism is reminded frequently that other geniuses found life among mediocrities, critics and gearheads boring and difficult. How lucky we all are, nonetheless , to be granted the privilege of his knowledge and experience, but not, understandably, his company, on Dpreview.
