Thomas Palmer and Lee Friedlander.  East Greenwich, RI. 2015. 

For more than thirty years Thomas Palmer has been making printing separations for books.  His credits include work by Lee Friedlander, Nicholas Nixon, Walker Evans, Robert Adams, Paul Strand, Edward Weston and many others.  In spring of 2015 I visited Palmer at his home in Newport, Rhode Island to talk with him about his start in photography, his earliest job in printing and making books with Irving Penn and Lee Friedlander.  

The Newport Art Museum is currently hosting a show of Palmer's photographs titled "This Newport," on display until September 5, 2016.
