Default Carl De Keyzer's quiet genius (MAGNUM)

One spends so much time with the big stars of Magnum, from HCB to Koudelka to Webb that it is easy to overlook the phenomenal work of Carl De Keyzer. In particular I would recommend two section sin his portfolio in the MAGNUM site: "India" early BW work from the 1980's in India and the extraordinary "Zona", a study of present day Siberian jails for younf delinquents. Th compos in "Zona", a color book, are out of this world, realy among the best on Magnum. Of course everyone else is robably already familiar with this amazing photog. I am just expressing the enthusiasm of a late dicovery.
But if, like me you don't know this man from Adam (no offense, Adam ;o), run to this URL and see for yourself:

Hey thanks Francis, it is a strange coincidence that yesterday I was browsing through the Magnum website with Bengal in specific, and found some Carl De Keyzer's work there. And now you have talked about it.

My two word critiques are being reported as being problematic and therefore removed. I feel caged inside this rule bound animal farm. Looking forward to breaking free...

Impressive body of work, but not falling in love with it, especially his color treatment and parti-pris with flash. Maybe I have seen a few too many hyper-realist renderings lately.
For some reason, the India shots reminded me of Capa's Normandy D-Day, yet, there is no urgency of any sorts in India, and intensity is in stillness, save kids of course , and festival days.

I will look again.
