W Eugene Smith, the photographer who wanted to record everything

Here is an interesting article on one of my all time favorite documentary photographers, Eugene Smith:

W Eugene Smith, the photographer who wanted to record everything

In April 1977, the photographer W Eugene Smith sat in a wheelchair in 23rd Street in New York and oversaw the loading of his vast archive into two removal trucks by a team of young volunteers. Among material carried out of his loft and transported to the Center for Creative Photography in Arizona were several hundred thousand photographic prints and negatives, hundreds of notebooks filled with his writings, boxes of cameras and accessories, 25,000 LPs and 8,000 books. His entire archive filled a high-school gymnasium, floor to ceiling, and weighed about 22 tonnes. https://www.theguardian...
