John Fields in the company of Strand, Stieglitz, Sieff and Mapplethorpe

In Max Oettli's review of Leonard Bell's Marti Friedlander (AUP, 2010), he puts John Fields in some very distinguished company.

... The meticulously calibrated duotone printing reflecting this care and craft gave us rich, fine significant blacks, and a powerful authoritative tonal range, which made classic black and white the strong and beautiful signifier it became in the hands of photographers as diverse as Strand, Stieglitz, Sieff and Mapplethorpe elsewhere, and artists like Friedlander's contemporary John Fields, locally.

Beneath what we see, New Zealand Books, vol. 20 no.1, Issue 90, Winter 2010, p23.

Max Oettli is Principal Lecturer: Photography at Otago Polytechnic.
