are you suggesting he invented a genre that didn't exist before him?
if you are suggesting this, i find this hard to believe
because he was just continuing the same sort of photography
timothy o sullivan did a few years before him, almost photographing the same things
and who knows maybe even the same tripod holes, like all the lovers of his work do with his tripod holes ...

i guess the OP will return in 3 years ...
