    How about "like her AND not"?

    Love her untitled film stills. Don't like a lot of her other stuff.

    I can't believe she's still (successfully!) milking the same old idea. The film stills was a great concept, but "all self-portraiture, all the time" should not a career make.

    What if all Edward Weston shot his whole career was peppers? Enough is enough.

It's a generous medium, photography." -- Lee Friedlander

    Geez. Those prints big enough?
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    That's how you make them special and not-so-boring.

    If you can't make 'em good, make 'em big!

    God forbid a woman is successful at making BIG art. No one seems to be complaining about the big Gursky prints or the big Anelsm Kiefer paintings, why does Sherman's work generate such ridiculous criticism? I'd say her work is about the right size, and it's NOT actually self-portraits, but an exploration of women and their roles in general. Should be a show well worth seeing full of provocative work.

    Dunno. Sour grapes? Doubt anyone even read the NYT links I posted. Too troubling, I guess. Maybe even too challenging. No one said beans about the "lost" Robert Frank photos.
