When Tony Cearns asked me two days ago if he could use Blow Up for a series of photographs he has running on his site My Street, I answered sure, it will be an honour.

Little did I know that I would end up in an extremely exclusive company of Frank, Koudelka, Ray-Jones and Stephen Shore.

Tony calls his series Great Photograph.

I am not sure that I belong in that company but it would be foolish to say no, wouldn’t it? I did not take up an argument .

Tony Cearns is also an eminent write on street photography. With his robust background he is able to add a new and poetic dimension to street photography analysis. You need to go there to see his selection and to read his texts.

What can I say, Tony, other than thanks for this great, great honour and support. It urges me to keep on trying .

Have a good day and a good weekend.

Best regards
Knut
