Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. That's all I can say. We get all the 'realism' we need on the evening news. Artistic vision is sadly lacking. And one of the seductive delusions of photography is that we are accurately recording the reality around us with our cameras.
Bank clerks keep accurate recordings of reality and, in my case at least, the results are not inspiring.

It is an old argument. Realism versus imagination. I didn't mean to put down Man Ray in my earlier post. My professor of photography at UCLA in the early '60s was Edmund Teske (of Chicago). He studied with Man Ray, and was a resident at Taliesin West with Frank Lloyd Wright for 10 years. Cold photographic realism is too easily usurped by journalism. That's what the wisdom he urged in his young students. Who were, in the main, architecture students.

I applaud a photographer imposing his ideas on realism. In the camera. In post. In a darkroom with smelly chemicals. It's all good.

Thanks, I've learned more than I had hoped for.
