August 12 2012

The members of the Pentax-Discuss Mail List(PDML) present their fourth annual collection of photography.

The PDML  is a loose collection of photographers around the world united by a love of photography and an association with Pentax cameras and lenses.

Each year the PDML members review their years photographs and submit the three of their best, or most representative of their work. Whether it is a search for technical perfection, documenting society or artistic creation the photos are submitted with the hope the profits will go to an honourable cause.

This year all profits from the sale of the PDML annual goes to the Global Health Initiative of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Children’s Hospital Boston. One of their activities is to provide training in paediatric medical care to physicians, nurses and personnel from countries where health care is far below the standards some of us enjoy.

The Quotes

The PDML tradition of including some of the highlights of the year’s discussions continues. Perhaps the whole PDML is summed by Evan R. Hanson ” I can’t think of anyplace that I’ve learned more and wasted more time than the PDML.”  There are more gems in the book.
