    They're funny, and by all reasonable grounds should be discardable as cheap and crass images, with no place in an art gallery.

    HOWEVER they're so brilliantly composed and executed that they compell a closer look.

    Morten, you've understood the essence of humour: oneself!

    Gotta say I'm surprised by the amount of loud-mouthed yesses, even you Nicole, whom I usually hear in a delicate whisper, have raised the decibel barrier to an affirmative level.

    For my part I believe that humour always belonged to art; the Gilgamesh epic is the oldest joke about that guy who managed to find the cure for mortality, but then went to have a bath and forgot to bring it with him, so that a snake just snatched it and men had to be mortal again. You could make a great stand-up set with it.

    my identical twin is th emost funny photographer I have come across.
    Strange - corny - suttle - loud....

    photography is in my opinion, one of the last fronteers (in the art world) where humour can be experienced and accepted - let's embrace it...

    (attached an image that often is mistakenly concieved as funny... it is not - this is photo journalialism at it's hight..)

    I find many of the threads and posts here on APUG to be highly amusing.

    I can't believe you guys forgot Gary Winnogrand!
    Humor, social critique and an artistic eye in perfect balance!
    Even Henri Cartier-Bresson has some humorous photographs.
    I have also seen other random photos from a variety of photographers which
    are strong evidence to the fact that its a crazy world after all!

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

    For Crying Out Loud is my favourite track after Bat Out Of Hell (which has earned me three speeding fines over the years!). I still have my original vinyl album, and the album picture disc and the 12" single in blood red vinyl. Also got the gold remastered CD version. I prefer the vinyl though.

    He's hard to forget! I mentioned him earlier in the thread!! A favorite... the woman eating ice cream in front of a clothing store with a headless male mannequin... very humorous, indeed!

    I am sorry Suzanne I miss the reference to Winogrand in your first stop...
    Still, I thought the whole thread was referring to him and was expecting to see a whole tribute written!
