First of all, the article doesn't mention whether Henner had Frank's permission to use The Americans. I do think it's uncreative to plagiarise, as happened in the ongoing saga of the painter (I won't call Richard Prince an artist!) who copied and modified a photographer's images and overpainted them. http://www.apug.org/forums/forum50/8...ck-cariou.html
At least Henner's "work" is more intelligently thought out and realised that Prince's - which imo amounts to childish doodles. I also think the "work" in both these cases amount to steaming piles of postmodermist extruded male bovine excrement.
Just my 2d - YMMV.
