Like I said... whatever you like. I often personally enjoy viewing work that has exactly zero influence on my own. And I even partially overlapped sponsorship with same pool of curators back then, though I was more in tune with the classic "West Coast School" of photog of
the central Calif coast, even though my own work was sufficient distinct and almost entirely in color back then. But I had enough of those
curator types at my own dinner table to hear their own jokes about their own profession. What they "have" to do, or are expected to do,
to keep up public interest with the "new" doesn't always jive with their personal taste.
