    I don't get it. Harold Adler initiated and worked for years on the whole
    damn thing, including the "catalog," (to which I am an invited
    contributor) which will be a book for sale. And Adler is not mentioned
    among the "noted photographers" (with all respect to the at least three
    of the others, whom I know)?
