Hi John,

Are you the world famous John Sexton from Carmel?

We used to be represented in the same gallery together.. Gallery Sur. Although we never got to meet in person it was an honor to see wy work hanging next to such an accomplised photographer.

Keep up the great work that you produce.. its an inspiration to all who work in large format and have a love landscape photography.

Nigel, I hate to be a downer here but this is almost certainly not the big man himself. John has his own website ( and I'd be very very surprised if his email address were

Then again, maybe I'm just in denial ;-)

I too find this site to be a real asset to LF. Anybody want to buy a Civil War documentary VHS. How about jazz or baseball tapes?

Actually it is likely all a hoax since a check with AOL shows that "js is not a known user"

some kid playing games at Thanksgiving no doubt.

What a bunch of doubting Thomases! You lot would even question the veracity of theophanic postings from A. Adams or E. Weston. Have faith and you too might receive an e-mal off- forum from E. Atget, like I just did.

-- Walter Glover (, November 23, 2001.

I too really appreciate this list

-- Ed Weston (, November 23, 2001.

Sacre Bleau! C'est Magnifique!

-- Henri (, November 23, 2001.

Alas, I am too late. My thunder, it has been stolen.

One hundred and seventy-five years of photographic evolution and "expose for the shadows and develop for the highligts" is still hot news?

I'm going back to bed.

-- Louis-Jacques Daguerre (, November 23, 2001.

Daguerre- I still say my system is better. And all of you still using big cameras?

-- William Henry Fox Talbot (, November 23, 2001.

Anyone pretending to be the Great Assistant to the True Master of the Craft should have the FBI swab their home for gram positive rods. (or gram negative?) Ansel Baby

Talbot! You and your inferior process, its so.....NEGATIVE! Making multiple copies of an image isn't art, it's mere printing. Why, a pimply faced teenager in a minilab could do it! If I weren't dead, I'd come over there and thump you on the head with a copper plate.

All the best - Lou

Andre Noble sent me an email mentioning the post by . It may just be a coincidence that this person's name is John Sexton (it is a fairly common name, believe it or not!).

Andre asked me to drop by your Large Format Photography forum, and have a look. It looks as though this group attract some dedicated large format photographers that LOVE photography, and are willing to share useful experiences with one another.

I wish my schedule would allow me to participate in this, as well as other, forums, but at the present time life is just a little to crazy to participate fully.

I wish you all the very best with your photography.

Who's John Sexton?

-- Chad Jarvis (, November 24, 2001.

Who wants to know?

-- Alec (, November 24, 2001.

Chad, Are you serious?!

-- Scott Walton (, November 24, 2001.

It may just be that Chad is a Brit. :>)

-- Andre Noble (, November 25, 2001.

A Brit? Hardly. I'm a fourth-generation Marylander. And I ask would it be possible to be so into large format without knowing who John Sexton is? Yates thinks this is hilarious. (Who's Yates?)

-- Chad Jarvis (, November 25, 2001.

> And I ask > would it be possible to be so into large format without > knowing who John Sexton is? Yates thinks this is hilarious. > (Who's Yates?) Very easy if you're not a N American - Yes, lots of Euorpean large Formatters know his name, but I would say plenty more don't. Many "well known" N American photographers are not so well known outside the Continent, and vice versa.

Tim A

-- Tim Atherton (, November 25, 2001.

I am not famous, neither a great photographer, but at least I am not fake.

-- Janez Pelko (, November 26, 2001.

Yates, I believe, is a well known Irish leader from the 1800th century. His grave site is found outside the city of Sligo in NW Treland, (It's set in an old monastery against the backdrop of a beautiful bluff there.) Andre

-- Andre Noble (, November 26, 2001.

Aw shucks! And I thought it was one of the Chichester Yates, related to the Earl of Eighten. A regular bounder of a knight.... Cheers, DJ

Nah. Check out my websites:
