I met Newhall on a number of occasions in Rochester at RIT and at the Visual Studies Workshop so I was a dyed in the wool fan but it is nice to have other perspectives.  E.g., Newhall was not very receptive to alt photo printing after the advent of silver gelatin.  He and Minor White used to say, "Sure, that's nice.  But is it photography?"
