    Vaughn, yes Burkett and Cramer both master craftsmen. But I have a sense that a lot of their images are somewhat static; maybe more so with Burkett.

    I think Misrach is in a different league artistically.

    Rather than a different league (and the ranking that it implies), they are just in different books. My opinion, of course. I have met all three, and would hesitate to rank them on artistic levels, or leagues. All see intently and with passion.

    If I were walking around with Misrach I'd probably be setting up the camera for the same sort of shots he'd be seeing
    But I can skip right through most of his photos without missing a beat. Too other-worldly as if shot in some lost civilization on Jupiter
    Beautiful but I get my fill quickly

    Eliot Porter
    Robert Glenn Ketchum
    Some John Pfahl and and every other color photographer
    There is another but I can't remember his name now

    I hardly ever pay attention to the band/group/performers name ..or the title of the song
    Does that mean I don't pick the same music as Billboard or Rolling Stone?


    You cant call chocolate chip your favorite if you eat peanut butter more often and often choose peanut butter over chocolate chip
    Nothing wrong with just appreciating everything with no favoritism involved
    Specialization does not make you more enjoyable to be around or anything else
    It may get you laid by another person "deep into that style" but I have little patience for that


    If I were to ever have a show of artwork I would display what I felt like
    Not a grouping of similar work with any sort of cogent cohesive concise clarified succinct or distilled message behind it


    How does that relate to this? I'm sure it twists along the line all the way along the line and the line is what's important ..not the F-G segment
