Look - I don't want to come off as unfair or mean - but it seems to me that you're really asking for it. Looking at the stuff on your website - one might think you're delusional about precisely this topic, Kevin. At least Levine is honest about what she's trying to do, not to mention daring in the extreme. Your argument is just a rehash of 19th century painters' arguments against photography.
In reference to me you make no sense at all and it just show your lack of maturity and I will accept your apology later.
Again thank for the compliments and if I am delusional then that is why I take excellent abstracts.
