Nicholas Steiner is a German-born octogenarian, retired physician, Stage IV cancer survivor and author of several memoirs. His career as a photographer began in 1950 when at age 15 he was sent to France with instructions how to use his newly acquired Ansco Speedex. Some black and white photos from that era remain among his favorites! Decades later, he switched from SLR cameras to the digital format and more recently to an iPhone. Steiner is amazed by the quality of images that technologic advances allow but misses his 35mm lens and what is best rendered in black and white.
