Dedicated to the memory of Richard D. Zakia (1925–2012)
Richard (“Dick”) Zakia embodied the goals of this book. He was totally committed to the life of photographic education. Through his many books his spirit lives on. He was the gentlest of men, who through his energies encouraged others to learn, love, and teach photography. For the authoring team of this book Dick was an inspiration, teacher, mentor, co-author, and most of all, a great friend.
