Warren Bates: One Last Look

A few days ago I posted about the death of Las Vegas night photographer Warren Bates. Recently I took some time to look through Warren's website and carefully think about every photograph. With the explosion of the internet over the past ten years, I can't remember the last time that I took time to carefully look through anybody's photo website. When I find a new website these days, I usually glance through the thumbnails and carefully look at a few of the most promising photos.

Yesterday someone wrote to me and asked, "What will happen to his flickr stream? And what about his website?" I imagine that his Flickr stream will disappear when his pre-paid Pro Account expires, and his website will disappear when his web-hosting ISP account becomes due. So, please take the time now to carefully look through the galleries of Warren's website while it's still available.

Here are a few of my favorites from Warren's website.

You can read Warren's obituary in the San Jose Mercury News.

Thanks, Andy, for posting these links. Bates did some amazing work.

I lived overseas for a number of years, and it always seemed that I met the nicest people just as they or I was leaving for somewhere else. I feel the same way about this body of work.
