Pentax 67 seems to be a women's camera.

So size does matter?

From elrectanguloenlamano: GENESIS BY SEBASTIÃO SALGADO: BLACK AND WHITE AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHS INSTILLING LOVE FOR NATURE

QuoteQuote:
That´s why during the first stage of the Genesis Project, between 2004 and 2008, Salgado chose an analog Pentax 645 medium format camera, whose 6 x 4,5 cm negative is 270% larger than a 35 mm one, so the rendering of full grayscale range, sharpness and possibilities of making very big prints with an accurate translation of what the photographer really experienced and saw during the unique and magic moment in which he pressed the shutter realease button of his camera and got the picture, are far superior.

Consequently, the medium format black and white 6 x 4.5 cm exposed negatives were digitized with an Imacon scanner and top-notch results were attained through a lot of toil, effort and tests, because it was not possible to use medium format Kodak Tri-X 400 film (only available in 120 rolls with capacity for 16 shots) and the Amazonas Agency team was forced to use Kodak Tri-X 320 film in 220 rolls, enabling 32 shots but whose sensitometric traits are less suitable to reportage than the classic Kodak Tri-X 400, so it is more difficult to work with it in contrejour photographs and when pushing.

Interesting thing on Tri-X. 320TXP is the professional version of Tri-X. It is still available in sheet film whereas 400TX is not. And in roll film only 400TX is available and not 320TXP anymore. I've shot both. You need to get tuned into 320TXP. You can't just shoot a few rolls and make an good judgement of it.

That BW seal shot looks like digital color converted to monochrome with way, way too much post processing with the clarity. It doesn't look like BW at all.

That seems to be his current style. It may work better for his more obviously grim subject matter.

Remarkably today's "hipsters" are copying completely his look.
Except they know how to make a better cup of coffee than Paul.

For what it's worth, anyone out there that wants to copy that style I'll just say it can make you look like a newbie to BW from the eyes of someone who shoots BW.

As a confessed Grammar Nazi, I think the title of this thread should be "Guess who WAS using a Pentax (a very long time ago)".

Definitely, but as Paul is an Englishman, he is enjoying a cuppa tea in the image.
