    Maybe it's like the "anti-Cristo", instead of wrapping things, he unwraps things.
    Do I hear an echo here? I think we all reached the performance conclusion (cf. my own post...)
    Using film since before it was hip.

    Roger,

    Years ago, a female friend of mine did a film on/of "arseholes." Pretentious, but amusing.

    Dear Jmal,

    She must have been a genius, then...

    And for Michel: a couple of Arleses back (the Rencontres, that is), I saw a book called 'Pisseuses'. To my surprise, it was exactly what it said on the cover -- in close-up.

    Maybe I chose a bad example.

    Cheers,

    R.

    Take a generous portion of bad taste, stir in as much chutzpah as possible, and it's AMAZING what some people can get away with!

    At least no one that we know of, ergo not genius enough.

    This is exactly what Tunick's staging reminded me of when I first saw one of the documentaries.

    I also don't recall hearing him vocalize such a noble intent for these images. Rather, from viewing the film it struck me that he was driven solely by a quest for celebrity and fame.

    For Roger Hicks.

    Arseholes, an photographic exhibition by Lee-Anne Richards was exhibited at the Photo Technical Exhibition Space, Sydney from 1-29 September 2001. The subject matter? You guessed it!
    Photography, the word itself, invented and defined by its author Sir John.F.W.Herschel, 14 March 1839 at the Royal Society, Somerset House, London. Quote "...Photography or the application of the Chemical rays of light to the purpose of pictorial representation,..". unquote.

    Any thoughts ?
    Just one, at the moment... "Genius status"??

    I don't know of any photograph I've ever seen that I would label (worthy of) "genius status"

    Can you give an example?

    Shit! (What else can I say?).

    Thanks for the enlightenment. I realized later that it might not have been the best example, and you have proven this.

    Cheers,

    I consider Tunick to be a (bad) conceptual artist, rather than a photographer. The reason the quality of the photos that are produced by his work dont matter is that they are more a byproduct of the work; an attempt to record the event (photojournalists dont fall under this category because they dont create the event, they record it). For fine art photographers, the event is the image. Tunick is more in line with artists like Vanessa Beecroft or even Niki Lee.
