    On Photography: A Tribute to Susan Sontag continues at the NY Metropolitan Museum of Art thru Sept 4th. For a review of the exhibit as well as a slide show of some of the images, read NY Times article

    Thanks for the link Doug. I've read her book (years ago) and though I didn't always agree with her point of view and conclusions I was very impressed with the power of her intelellect. If nothing else the book certainly expanded my vocabulary.

    I thought the book was pretty tidy and to the point. I didn't see much to disagree with, really.
