    if he made crappy holga photographs, or portraits with a speed graphic and aero ektar
    or a wet plate photo, full of streaks /uneven coating would you still have the same negative views?
    or is the problem the photos were for a newspaper article contrasting
    clinical over saturated, over contrasty digital v, analog ...
    grunge band rather than olympic athletes ?

    Yes, of course. He could have used a Linhof, the results (or lack thereof) are what matter.

    And I don't care about the subject matter, grunge band, athlete, tree, what have you.

    I see mostly sour grapes, pretentiousness, and failure to get the point of Clendenin's images in most the objections. Don't get the outsized hostility/outrage toward these shots at all.

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

    It's just my opinion. The photographer is damned good though.

    Yes but the point is you called it trickery when he does something that is outside his formula/style.

    Why isn't it experimentation? Why isn't it fun and different? Why isn't it stepping outside his comfort zone?

    Why do you feel cheated?

    I didn't call it trickery. I love it when I and other photographers step outside their comfort zone. Without experimentation, nothing progresses. I don't know if it's fun but different? No.

    My point is that he's a hired gun and the photographer will use a style that not his own to complete an assignment. No I don't feel cheated. Some art directors will go to a photographer and say "Hey can you do this?" even though it's not their style. As a matter of fact, I do like the fact that he's shooting analog with an old camera.

    Some of the responses here are akin to a group of people waiting and praying for the analog messiah to come and bring the world back to what they think it should be.

    The guy never said he was your messiah. He was just experimenting with an old lens.

    This is just like the Life of Brian.

    As his mom would say " He's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy."

    Whilst I agree with Ian's statement:

    He is free to do whatever he wants whether we like it or not.
