Default Re: good and never heard of

Thanks Peter.

The cuba gallery shoots a blank for me (the copied manifesto did not help at the beginning. Who are we kidding?).

I have to look at other ones, but about the dope, it's great that he finds expression i it, but deja vu as far as photography. And also for me, more journalism than photography. the best for me was the kid shooting at the pigeon with his toy gun. That is photography for me. the adult world is cut off, from him, but thru the played violence on the pigeon, has gotten to him already, and we can imagine the violence of alienation and substances later on (if we wish, it's just a kid playing after all...The magic of photography). Which makes the capture subtly as strong and ominous as knee-jerk shots of junkies, where the impact in not from the photographer, but the straight reality he is shooting. Hence my quote about journalism rather than photographic voice, as far as matters.

Is it me or doesn't anyone find that this type of photography is probably the most ubiquitous in the medium of free lance (or not maybe) photo-journalism, and has lost its impact, save for a few. I wish I had a problem like you do, but it's been done to death, IMO.

Always happy to check all these names given on this forum, I wish we were more to exchange opinions about them.
