Don't know his work. Never seen the picture before.

Still even though you state it's famous, to me it's nothing more than a mundane picture of a car on fire.

Nothing about it seems to bring it up the scale to being a great picture or even all that interesting.

There must not be many car fires in the UK?

When I grew up in Canada I don't recall ever seeing a car on fire. In the US it's pretty common and in fact they always send fire trucks to car accidents.

Two weeks ago something like 4-5 women burned to death in the back of a limo crossing a bridge into San Francisco.
