I don't think you have much of an argument if all you can do is try to belittle people. Not knowing who this bloke is does nothing to my credibility, it just proves that I don't live in the US. He's obviously quite well known in US photographic circles but the US is not the beginning and end of the photographic world!

Finishing off your pontification with this question hurts your credibility on a photography website. Did you read the article or look at the pictures that accompanied the article? Even for non photographers his images are instantly recognizable whether they know his name or not.
