In the American West project consisted of approx 17000 8 x10 negatives edited down to about 120 images for the show.

This was no minor project, even with assistants to do some of the lugging.

I am in the middle of a project , probably used 800 sheets of 4x5 and 1-2 hundred sheets of 8x10.. minor compared to his project, I believe I may end up shooting over 10,000 images but I can say from experience this is a lot of work.
I think Drew you need to walk in his shoes before you make such silly comments about his work.
