Is anyone here acquainted with Craig Law, professor of photography at Utah State University? I ask because there's a picture of him with a camera on p. 50 of the 3/05 Smithsonian Magazine.

The camera, on tripod, is shown from the left rear. Its bed is dropped, it has a Graflok back and what appears to be a Graflex lever-wind roll holder with a red or orange lever. There's no top finder, and the side RF, if any, is hidden. Professor Law, who looks a little off balance, is holding the tripod's center column with his right hand and doing something to the lens or shutter with his left hand. He has a loupe on a cord around his neck. The focusing panel isn't visible. A cable dangles from the shutter.

The camera might be a stripped Crown, it might be some other field or press camera. Ideas, anyone? I noticed the picture this evening, can't look for the man until Monday.

What's odd about all this is that he's shooting roll film on a 4x5 press camera. Surely he'd have been better off shooting the same format on a smaller camera.

Cheers,

Dan
