Don't miss John Palatinus in Berlin!

Dear Alan,

I wanted to drop a quick line and thank you for being a big part of bringing the work of John Palatinus to limelight. I happened to be in Berlin on business the day I saw the ad for John’s show and I am so glad I stopped by. What a pleasure it was to meet you, Bob and John and to enjoy the drinks, conversations and, of course, John’s photography.

Alan, I also wanted to leave a comment on your blog and acknowledge something else (and I hope you won’t edit this ☺). You are the most modest man with the biggest genuine passion for the art of vintage beefcake photography that I have ever met. I was floored with the depth of your knowledge on various photographers of the past eras, techniques and background stories – and the entertaining way you shared all that. Sure, John Palatinus was (quite deserving) the star of that evening in Berlin, but I felt our table was the most interesting place there because of all the aforementioned. I hope you would seriously consider writing a book – better yet, series of books – and share all that wonderful material, stories and pictures with the rest of the world. Thank you for an amazing evening and look forward to crossing our paths again!
