The World Seems Very Underexposed

Brian Lanker has passed away. The sad news none of us wanted to hear has come.

In photography terms, the world seems very underexposed right now. One of the brightest lights in photography has physically left us. His spirit, though, will continue to shine brighter than all the powerful strobes put together. Generations to come will be wonderfully lit by his powerful work, his powerful presence and his powerful grace.

Prayers must continue for Brian’s wife, Lynda, his family, his loyal assistant Lynne Lamb and for all his dear friends. Hearts are aching and many surely are mad that Brian is no longer with us. In such confusing times, these verses are what always carry me along. If you so believe, may they do the same for you.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6

The National Press Photographers Association has posted this obituary on Lanker.

    An artist and poetic story teller’s voice has been silenced. Thankfully his photographs will endure.

    Thank you, Jeff, sober and comforting words.

    As Carl Davaz wrote, “genius” is the best word to describe Brian.
