    This is obviously inspired by "99 Cents", or at least shares the same motivation, but it's actually rather different any of the "99 Cent" prints I know of (three different ones iirc). No columns, too hight a viewpoint and too many aisles.

    Googling the jpg's filename leads me here:

    So it is, Struan. There are several version of "99-cent," but I think you're right that this isn't one of them. It's also tilted, which none of the Gurskys I've seen are.

    Ah thankyou very much! I had an impression it could've been the work of a famous photographer because it's such a great shot but when I saw the name it threw me a bit. Now I know it's an imitation, a good one at that, I'll look for the Gursky images. I'm looking at optical democracy or new topographics for my workbook in uni you see. Just printed from a 6x6 neg of logs end on. Nothing spectacular but it looks quite interesting.

    The wikipedia article is as good a summary as anything:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Topography

    There's a lot more where that came from if you search the web. The exhibition has joined others like The Armory Show or the Salon des RefusÚs as representing a sea-change in artistic opinion.

    The link with Gursky is that he is one of a group of now-famous students who studied under the Bechers at Dusseldorf. Others in the group include Thomas Ruff, Thomas Struth and Candida H÷fer.
