    Much ado about nothing.

    He's not the spokesperson for large format "old ways".

    He's a guy who tried out a technique and then was asked/interviewed about it for the LA fucking Times. Not Large Format Weekly.

    The public doesn't know shit about this stuff one way or the other, nor do they care.

    The only people that care are other photographers who probably know what he did anyways.

    Jesus people, who gives a shit if he pissed on the prints to age them.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    "Modern crap art with a ridiculous "artist statement" can sell for huge money. That doesn't make art in the eyes of anybody but those who buy it, and possibly not even (considering that those buying are often just speculating on its raise in value, regardless of its artistic quality). "

    Care to share some examples?

    Thomas Kincaid.
    Peter Lik.
    That fuckwit in Britain(?) who makes "art" of dead animals.

    Just to name three. But according to you, they're great because thay make/made a lot of money.

    Edit - Andy Warhol's big soupcans were garbage, too, as was most everything else he did. And that guy who does all that horrible dreadful stuff with the eagles - garbage.

    Robert Rauschenberg made "art" with a stuffed goat once. Damien Hirst is your man. That's it, eh? Don't start.

    That's all I care to think of and post, it's pretty far down my list of things to worry about. Yes, Hirst, thanks.

    What's with Peter Lik?
    “The photographer must determine how he wants the finished print to look before he exposes the negative.
    Before releasing the shutter, he must seek 'the flame of recognition,' a sense that the picture would reveal
    the greater mystery of things...more clearly than the eyes see."
    ~Edward Weston, 1922.
